Fiction Friday: The Bishops Daughter

The Bishop's Daughter by Tiffany L.  Warren
“An eloquent argument for speaking even the most difficult truths.” —New York Times Book Review

Paul Moore’s vocation as an Episcopal priest took him— with his wife, Jenny, and their family of nine children—from robber-baron wealth to work among the urban poor, leadership in the civil rights and peace movements, and two decades as the bishop of New York. The Bishop’s Daughter is his daughter’s story of that complex, visionary man: a chronicle of her turbulent relationship with a father who struggled privately with his sexuality while she openly explored hers and a searching account of the consequences of sexual secrets.

Honor Moore's memoir, The Bishop's Daughter, was a finalist for a National Book Critics Circle Award.

Published in May 2008, The Bishop's Daughter was named a Favorite Nonfiction Book of 2008 by the Los Angeles Times, an Editor's Choice by New York Times and was selected by National Book Critics Circle as part of their “Good Reads” recommended reading list.
