Dorothy Day (1897-1980), founder of the Catholic Worker movement, and one of the most prophetic voices in the American Catholic church, has recently been proposed as a candidate for canonization. In this illustrated biography, Jim Forest provides a compelling portrait of her heroic efforts to live out the radical message of the Gospel. An ardent pacifist, Day was frequently arrested for demonstrating for peace and the rights of workers right through the Vietnam war, decades after she started her movement. Drawing on Day’s recently published diaries and letters, Forest chronicles her extraordinary journey, with special emphasis on the unique spiritual vision that underlay her dramatic witness. “ Jim Forest’s book about Dorothy Day is much like the grand lady herself: disarming in simplicity of approach and statement, but awesome in cumulative effect.” –JOHN DEEDY, COMMONWEALJim Forest
