Video About This Audio Book

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
8 Hrs.32 Min.


This superb memoir of a gay working-class boy from Manchester exploring how to reconcile his sexuality with his Catholicism is all the more powerful because of his deep knowledge of and commitment to his faith.

Spanning the late 1960s to the present day, Mark Dowd's Queer and Catholic chronicles a changing attitude to same-sex attraction over more than half a century and is packed with stories in turn funny, deeply moving and spiritually insightful, including coming out to his parents by talking in his sleep, training to become a Dominican priest before eloping from a religious order with an ex-friar, and attending the funeral of his father - accompanied by his father!
