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.… (lisätietoja)

    RidgewayGirl: The fathers in these two books are very similar, although Lockwood tempers her humor with a lot of honesty and introspection, while Key keeps things humorous (and more shallow).

Patricia Lockwood's father is a Catholic priest. Which is less scandalous than it sounds: apparently there's a loophole that means under a very particular set of odd circumstances, it's permissible for a priest to be married. That's not the only way her dad is weird, though. He's chock-full of eccentricities that I kept wanting to find entertaining, but which are mostly just kind of awful. Her mother's a hoot, though.

Anyway, in this memoir Lockwood writes about her experiences of growing up in this household and this church, about returning to live with her parents again for a while as an adult, about her very complicated feelings about Catholicism, and about her own calling as a poet.

Her writing is weird, vivid, thoughtful, frequently hilarious, sometimes moving, sometimes profound and generally amazing in ways that don't necessarily seem like they should work, but really really do. I'm not sure quite what I expected from it going in, but what I got was nothing I could have anticipated, and it was kind of fascinating. ( )

Patricia (Trish) has grown up in a home where her father is a priest. He is a strong personality and tends to make others feel less than perfect. Trish and her siblings are surrounded with Christ symbols and are constantly reminded of the trinity and the Virgin Mary and other religious stories.

This his is a very interesting book and there are sections where I was laughing out loud. Patricia Lockwood's turning of phrases is acute and done well. ( )

Priestdaddy did finally get LOL funny around page 75, as opposed to wry or clever which it was before that. After the humorous point in the book, the author seemed to relax and get lyrical. She revealed herself to be the author of the free verse poem, "Rape Joke" that went viral 7 or 8 years ago now, and I started to pay more attention.

Much of the book dragged for me, seeming to be too vague or too specific, and I wondered whether I am too old (the author is half my age) or too non-Roman Catholic (as a lapsed Congregationalist) for it to resonate with me. But then she writes passages like this:

"I know all women are supposed to be strong enough now to strangle presidents and patriarchies between their powerful thighs, but it doesn't work that way. Many of us were actually affected, by male systems and male anger, in ways we cannot always articulate or overcome. Sometimes, when the ceiling seems especially low and the past especially close, I think to myself, I did not make it out. I am still there in that place of diminishment, where that voice an octave deeper than mine is telling me what I am."

In sum: the brilliant parts vastly outweighed the meh parts for me. ( )

Reading this book is like hanging out with a friend who is unafraid to be their unapologetic, problematic self with you. Lockwood’s gift for metaphors that stretch your mind without becoming academic, combined with her unpretentious sense of humor, make her narration addictive. Her life story is not told in a way where she recites facts with clarity or attempts to impart a meaningful picture of life as the daughter of a priest. Rather, she tells her story in a way that makes the reader part of her journey to understand how to live with a past that is fraught, sometimes painful, and also cherished.

The end of the book sort of putters off, but that also makes sense. Lockwood is still young, and this book reflects her youth. But she grapples with existence and abortion and religion and feminism and popular culture in a powerful way that I can not compare to anyone else. Her writing makes me hopeful about the world; she is irreverent, funny, and is respectful and cognizant of the characters in her memoir. I have always loved her Twitter account, and this book proves that she is capable of so much more than fleeting, beautifully random and sometimes offensive one-liners. ( )

A fascinating memoir about an eclectic childhood lived in the shadow of the Catholic Church. Some of Lockwood's descriptions resonated with my own growing up in a faith background. ( )
