About the Author

James Carroll was raised in Washington, D.C., and ordained to the Catholic priesthood in 1969. He served as a chaplain at Boston University from 1969 to 1974, then left the priesthood to become a writer. A distinguished scholar-
in-residence at Suffolk University, he is a columnist for the Boston Globe and a
regular contributor to the Daily Beast.

His critically admired books include Practicing Catholic, the National Book Award–winning An American Requiem, House of War, which won the first PEN/Galbraith Award, and the New York Times bestseller Constantine’s Sword, now an acclaimed documentary.

What People are Saying About This

Frederick Busch

"In 'The City Below', as in his earlier novels, James Carroll works the American counterparts to the precincts of Graham Greene. His characters engage with sexual, religious, and ethical dilemmas we pray not to face, in a Boston no other writer portrays with such scruple or power."
