The Second non-fiction collection
The seventeen pieces in Jude Joseph Lovell's second collection of nonfiction writing deepens his inquiries into the things that matter to him most: family, faith, and popular art. A series of book and film reviews written for a small magazine in his home state of Pennsylvania charts the development of his emerging critical voice. "Upon This Rock" offers a compelling portrait of a hard-working band and wonders about the similarities between rock n' roll shows and church services. "4F" reflects on a childhood played out across the backyard gridiron as well as around the altar. And in the powerful title essay, Lovell strives to breach the lines between Heaven and Earth to pursue a further connection with the father he lost - only to discover that the reverse is already happening.
Diverse, humorous, and poignant by turns, THE INTERCESSIONS is a wide-ranging examination of those things that give our busy lives color and meaning.
