Blue Boy in a Black Dress: a memoir

The award-winning memoir that Mark Abley called “a Canadian classic,” A Blue Boy in a Black Dress is a college teacher’s look back on the five years he spent in seminaries studying to be a Catholic priest in the 1960s (and further, to the childhood that led to seminary doors). But it’s also a look forward to the fate of organised religion in the twenty-first century.
