This runaway New York Times best seller is a book to savor and treasure. Author Tony Hendra, a National Lampoon and Spy magazine veteran and one of the world's greatest satirists, delivers a beautifully written, humorous, and profoundly moving memoir reminiscent of Tuesdays with Morrie.

At 14 years old, Tony began an affair with a married woman that ended when the jilted husband, a devout Roman Catholic, sent Tony to a Benedictine abbey. There, Tony met the remarkably kind and compassionate Father Joe. For the next four decades, Father Joe's guidance never faltered, even as Tony failed in marriage, fought substance abuse, and struggled to find meaning.

The New York Times says Father Joe belongs in the first tier of spiritual memoirs ever written. It is a wondrous celebration of a saintly man, and it is impossible to forget.

    " Loved Father Joe, a gentle soul full of wit and wisdom. Too bad I can't say the same for the author. He was unlikable and it ruined the story of Father Joe. Father Joe deserved better. "

    " I think I listened to this one on tape/cd and wasn't that impressed. Didn't leave me feeling the way so many felt. I don't know. "

    " This book reminded me that it's not necessarily the action that may be wrong or right in itself. It is about the intent behind the action. "
