    A Far Cry from Hagiography!

    All Is Grace: a page turner indeed, a wonderful book. The balance between Dorothy Day's own words and the author's narrative is just right. Forest sets up the personal and historical context that makes the many direct quotations from Day's published and unpublished works alive, clear, apt. This biography reads like a well-paced novel. It's a very complex weaving together of the events of Day's life and the growth of the Catholic Worker movement to make a colorful and complete tapestry.

    A Must Read Book

    I have read so many books and articles by and about Dorothy Day that I did not think I could learn more about this remarkable woman. Was I ever wrong! Jim Forest includes so many new facets about her thinking and life. I loved the layout with the quotes and pictures. I will reread this book many times and I highly recommend it.

    The photos alone are worth it!

    I have most of the books written about Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker movement. This latest one is easy reading and the photos teach a lot about U.S. history and so much of what doesn't get into textbooks or mainstream media. She is one of my heroes and Jim Forest's writing style reinforces my deep appreciation of her witness to God's love and her personal invitation to each of us to Walk the Talk of gospel love.
