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 Forest sets up the personal and historical context that makes the many direct quotations from Day's published and unpublished works alive, clear, apt.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.
