Description:

Hailed by The Washington Post as “one of the most eloquent and probing public intellectuals in America,” Richard Rodriguez offers provocative meditations on religion, sexuality and a sense of place in our post-9/11 world in Darling: A Spiritual Autobiography. Weaving an “infinitely… supple, rich tapestry” (San Francisco Chronicle) from Jerusalem to Silicon Valley, Moses to Liberace, the Pulitzer Prize finalist writes with compassion of the religions that have shaped and excluded him as a Christian and a homosexual.
