Patricia Lockwood - Priestdaddy

From Saturday Morning, 10:04 am on 17 February 2018

Patricia Lockwood's memoir, Priestdaddy, was named one of the 10 best books of 2017 by The New York Times. Lockwood's father, married with five children, had a religious conversion that saw him get a special dispensation from the Pope to become a priest. Priestdaddy is described by The Guardian as a "dazzling comic memoir". Lockwood has published two collections of poetry - Balloon Pop Outlaw Black, and Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals, and has a huge following for her poetry and comedy on Twitter. She is in Aotearoa in March for Writers and Readers at the NZ Festival.
