Description

In a book that owes as much to Madonna the pop star as the Virgin Mary, Mary O'Connell presents a collection of stories in which the spirit of a female saint infuses and informs the experiences of contemporary women in difficult predicaments. St Agnes the Patron Saint of Girls delivers a hilarious running commentary to a high-school class being subjected to a hopelessly out-of-date sex-education video. St Anne, Patron Saint of Mothers, offers words of advice to a mother who sleeps with her boss in exchange for time off with her infant daughter. Though her heroines may hover on the brink of despair, Mary O'Connell retains a buoyant freshness throughout this collection, which takes the dusty icons down from their shelves, and sets their spirits lose in the modern world.show more
