A Review of Peter Kwasniewski’s Book on NRO

National Review Online has just today published a review which I wrote of Peter Kwasniewski’s book Noble Beauty, Transcendent Holiness, which you can read at the following link:

I have to say that I am pretty thrilled at the idea of having a piece of my writing on NRO, in part because from 1964-68, my mother worked as the secretary of James P. McFadden, the associate publisher of National Review (well before there was such a thing as “online.”) While she was employed there, one of the many projects she worked on was a supplement to the magazine, a collection of essays titled “What in the Name of God is Going in the Catholic Church?”, published in 1966, I believe. Shortly after I came on board with NLM as a regular writer, I wrote a bit about the experiences which my parents had of those crazy years, when the really crazy was yet to come. (I don’t know if there was ever a sequel to the supplement, but if there was, it should have been called “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet!”)
