From the PublisherPraise for Garry Wills's Saint Augustine
"This brilliant biography, this excellent small book, presents with brio the life of a person who still stirs us, throws us off, speaks to us, heart to heart. Garry Wills's agile mind matches the agility of St. Augustine.
--New York Times Book Review
"Not often, but every now and then, a truly gifted film director takes up well-known material... and turns a subject with which we thought we were thoroughly familiar into something once again strange and challenging... Garry Wills's Saint Augustine has done this. Seldom has a long-familiar figure, whose works fill thirteen double-columned volumes in the standard edition, and whose life and thought have been debated for sixteen hundred years, emerged so fresh and challenging, from so masterful a 'director's' hand... A deft and ingenious expositor set to work upon a great thinker."
