Heaven, Where Batchelors Sit

Author: Gerard Windsor


This title is currently unavailable for purchase.

Twenty-three young Australians became Jesuit novices in 1963; only two are still members of that fabled Catholic order. Gerard Windsor was among those who departed. Now one of our most stimulating writers, he tells the story . of the bonding and coming of age of men in the idealistic 1960s through to the eventual disappearance of our Irish-Catholicism, the strongest tribal identity in Australia's history. This is a landmark book that defines a whole culture. Elegant, compassionate, often very funny, this mosaic of autobiographical stories charts the growth of an imagination and shines with the sparkle of individual lives.
