Summary
Dorothy Day (1897-1980) was a prominent Catholic, writer, social activist, and co-founder of a movement dedicated to serving the poorest of the poor. Her life has been revealed through her own writings as well as the work of historians, theologians, and academics. What has been missing until now is a more personal account from the point of view of someone who knew her well. Dorothy Day: The World Will Be Saved by Beauty is a frank and reflective, heartfelt and humorous portrayal as written by her granddaughter, Kate Hennessy
Summary
The youngest grandchild of controversial Catholic and social activist Dorothy Day shares personal insights into her life and work that describe Day's experiences before and after conversion, her prolific writings and her sometimes radical perspectives
