NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW 10 BEST BOOKS OF 2017 SELECTED AS A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR: The Washington Post * Elle * NPR * New York Magazine * Boston Globe * Nylon * Slate * The Cut * The New Yorker * Boston Globe * Chicago Tribune “Affectionate and very funny . . . wonderfully grounded and authentic. This book proves Lockwood to be a formidably gifted writer who can do pretty much anything she pleases.” – The New York Times Book Review From Patricia Lockwood—a writer acclaimed for her wildly original voice—a vivid, heartbreakingly funny memoir about balancing identity with family and tradition. Father Greg Lockwood is unlike any Catholic priest you have ever met—a man who lounges in boxer shorts, loves action movies, and whose constant jamming on the guitar reverberates “like a whole band dying in a plane crash in 1972.” His daughter is an irreverent poet who long ago left the Church’s country. When an unexpected crisis leads her and her husband to move back into her parents’ rectory, their two worlds collide. In Priestdaddy, Lockwood interweaves emblematic moments from her childhood and adolescence—from an ill-fated family hunting trip and an abortion clinic sit-in where her father was arrested to her involvement in a cultlike Catholic youth group—with scenes that chronicle the eight-month adventure she and her husband had in her parents’ household after a decade of living on their own. Lockwood details her education of a seminarian who is also living at the rectory, tries to explain Catholicism to her husband, who is mystified by its bloodthirstiness and arcane laws, and encounters a mysterious substance on a hotel bed with her mother. Lockwood pivots from the raunchy to the sublime, from the comic to the deeply serious, exploring issues of belief, belonging, and personhood. Priestdaddy is an entertaining, unforgettable portrait of a deeply odd religious upbringing, and how one balances a hard-won identity with the weight of family and tradition.

Free-wheeling and surreal yet deadly serious, and including the viral hit 'Rape Joke' ('An oblique mini-masterpiece' Guardian), this book shows one of our most original poets at her virtuosic best. 'Lockwood has written a book at once angrier, and more fun, more attuned to our times and more bizarre, than most poetry can ever get' STEPHEN BURT, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW, BOOKS OF THE YEAR 'Lockwood should enter the canon forever . . . her lines left me crying on the subway' KAT STOEFFEL, THE CUT 'The little hairs on my back rose often while reading Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals . . .

“It’s sticking around when things get tough that you find out what somebody’s worth. But I guess you already know that.” So says Lucy Hatch to her stepdaughter, Denny, who has run away from her fledgling music career in Nashville to escape marriage troubles. Now back home in Texas, Denny learns that leaving her past behind won’t be so simple: she’s pregnant. Lucy is also at a turning point. The flower shop where she’s worked for years is closing, and her husband, Ash Farrell, is finding that living one day at a time is harder than he thought it would be. Everything used to stay the same in the little town of Mooney; now big changes are in the air—and everyone has to shift their plans to embrace the future. As Denny stops running and finally faces the music, Lucy works to regain her own footing by helping the man she loves find his. Heartwarming, funny, and distinctly Southern, Return of the Stardust Cowgirl explores the joys and sorrows of life in a small town, the complexity of love, and the bonds that we share only with family. From the Trade Paperback edition.

I. The hero is born into an unhappy family; he has nightmares but loves the girl next door; a dog kills his pet duck; he is left alone on the big river, where a man had drowned; he frequents the upholstery repair shop of his grandpa Bill, the home of Bill and Gram, and the great house on the river; he falls into a trance in his father?s room beside the river; he learns to fish and to kill his catch; an evil aunt ruins his sister Tari?s playhouse; he loves little girls too much and too often; he has a vision while fishing for crawdads in the San Lorenzo River; he and his brother Seth learn of their father?s death, smothered in a pyramid of sand. II. Now ten years old, he takes up entomology; his disturbed mother?s pet pigeon is crushed in a door; he learns the truth about his philandering father; in high school he has a new friend in Frankie Lee; he murders prairie dogs with his father?s gun; he meets the mysterious Johnny Martin, a poet, in love with the hero; he faints in class while presenting the story of Leopold and Loeb. III. He wins a prize and meets Eisenhower; he works as forest firefighter and sees a man burn to death; Johnny Martin shows him around Berkeley. IV. At Berkeley he suffers from herpes simplex and meets strange characters; a Los Angelino seduces him; Frankie Lee joins him a sordid apartment; he falls in love and travels to Mexico, where he loses his way; he goes to Harvard but doesn?t like it and flees to Europe, hoping to marry the girl he loves, who is studying in Spain. V. When the girl rejects him, he takes a boat from Barcelona to Athens, where he lives near a whorehouse in Piraeus; he sells his blood to survive; he climbs Mount Olympus in a snow storm; he hitchhikes across Algeria just after the war of independence; he takes drugs in Tangiers. VI. Back in Berkeley, he finds Frankie Lee and visits old friends, including Johnny Martin; he has night visions; he meets Isis; he locates his brother, who has gone mad; he consorts with drug dealers and enjoys their products; the streets are alive with revolution; he insults his professors and he meets a woman who claims to be from another planet; he lives with hippies, some of them mad; he meets a strange man in a bourgeois house; he has a shattering vision in which he turns into light and briefly leaves the world. VII. With Isis he moves to the mountains in Arizona, where he raises a family; he corresponds with Frankie Lee, living in LA; he eats peyote and remembers the day his father died; he climbs in the wilderness and converses about his early youth; he travels in remote areas; with friends he climbs a volcano in the night and slipping on a glacier almost dies; he returns to his hometown to find his grandmother incapacitated, abused, and near death; his grandfather recalls his brother?s madness; he undergoes a minor operation, after which he suspects Isis of infidelity. IX. Ramses and Isis travel to Egypt, where they run up against Egyptian bureaucracy and attendant horrors; a Copt cheats them and takes their money; their hopes to see the mummies of the pharaohs come to naught. XI. Ramses learns of his brother-in-law?s suicide, shot through the heart; going to NYC to investigate, he learns that his sister Tari was with another man that night; living in Greece with his teenage son, Ramses visits Ithaca, where they search for the house of Odysseus; back in the states, Ramses learns of his brother?s whereabouts, missing for forty years; he visits him in a halfway house, a house of horror. XIII. Ramses feels intense pains in his abdomen and goes to the emergency room, where his colon bursts; they operate, but after terrible suffering he dies, remembering the vision of light he saw in his youth.
