Priestdaddy: A Memoir | Patricia Lockwood
From Patricia Lockwooda writer acclaimed for her wildly original voicea vivid, heartbreakingly funny memoir about having a married Catholic priest for a father. Destined to be a classic. . .this years must-read memoir. Mary Karr, author of The Liars Club Father Greg Lockwood is unlike any Catholic priest you have ever meta 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 Churchs 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 adolescencefrom 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 groupwith 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 sexual 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. In her beautifully written prose debut, Lockwood effortlessly pivots from the raunchy to the sublime, from the comic to the deeply serious, describing how she found her voice as a writer, reflecting on the Churchs recent history of scandal and abuse, and exploring issues of belief, belonging, and personhood.

This memoir started out really strong, but the last 1/3 didn‘t really hold up(for me). Patricia Lockwood has such a unique voice and her use of language and observations are original and odd ( that‘s meant with love & praise)!! Her family is SO offbeat but that‘s what made this memoir delightful. I found the content really important for a deeper appreciation of Lockwood‘s current auto-fiction No one is Talking About This. Satisfying read.

BarbaraBB Satisfying indeed although I agree with the last 1/3! 9mo

Although it went on a bit too long to my taste I was utterly charmed by the Lockwood‘s. What a family! That father! I laughed out loud about the Catholic craziness, yet Patricia Lockwood writes so lovingly about all of them! Quite special! Thanks for the recommendation Cindy!

Such a crazy family, how could she _not_ write a memoir! The poet‘s grasp of language shines through and the humor is irresistible (you WILL laugh out loud) but she touches on serious subjects too. Highly recommended.

“Lutherans have a passion for banners that approaches the erotic. They are never happier than when they are scissoring big purple grapes out of felt and gluing them onto other felt.”

Lockwood certainly has a unique voice - I‘ve never read anyone like her before. This book is a memoir of when she moves back in with her bonkers father, who is the priest of the title.

The style is very much like the first half of No-one Is Talking About This, but more of it and on a wider range of topics so, if you liked that, you‘ll love this.

Mad, slightly disturbing, cover too!

A friend suggested I read this after I asked for book recs that wouldn‘t make me sad, and this delivered—Lockwood is really funny! But what I like about her so much more than most other comedy writers is that she feels like a real person, and she says flat out, “I cannot describe these people in my life to you as they are, and my efforts will fall flat.” I loved it.

This memoir is a great mix: Patricia‘s unconventional upbringing as a the daughter of a Catholic priest (you read right) and her time moving back in her parents after her husband has a health crisis. Her family has the kind of wacky characters that populate David Sedaris‘ books, but she also peppers her memoir with some more serious thoughts on religion, too. Her narration is delightful and reminds of my friend Jenny when she‘s tipsy. ⬇️ Def pick!

Megabooks ⬆️ when she says something funny her voice gets low and serious as if the joke is imparting nuclear codes. (edited) 2y

This book was not what I expected, in a good way. Something about the cover and the title maybe. But I really loved it and came away in awe of Lockwood‘s writing prowess. She found such perfect ways of describing her family members and her relationship with religion and the experience of being a writer. There were so many places I would have marked had it not been a library book! If you like well written slice of life memoirs, go for it!

Patricia Lockwood and her husband move in with her parents due to financial woes. What sets this apart from the usual story of a grown up child returning to the nest is the fact that her dad is a married Catholic priest due to a loophole in the church rules. I found this book to be both poignant and hilarious at times and was actually glad I was wearing a mask in the doctor‘s waiting room while I read this as it made me laugh out loud at times.

kspenmoll I had the same response to this book. Just loved it! And yes, both poignant & hilarious. 2y

The child is up in the middle of the night, so I had a chance to finish this one. I must say, I liked the first half better than the second, it got a little navel gaze-y. Lockwood is a poet and it definitely shows (I‘m not a poetry person). But this also made me cackle with laughter more than once and confirmed my firmly held Virginian belief that the Midwest is full of weirdos. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼1/2

Finished this up on an #audiorun today! Excellent as an audiobook (read by the author). Very entertaining, weird, funny, and can I say weird again? 😂 Beautiful writing that grows on you, and tenderness that creeps up on you. I thought it was just entertaining for the first couple hours and then it grew on me in a weird way and by the end I found it far more poignant, funny, and beautiful than I thought I would. Worth a listen, ⭐⭐⭐⭐.

To the question of what of Catholics believe, the author, in part, says about jesus.

There‘s a reason this made many “Best Of” lists. I‘d hate for people to miss out on her beautiful language because they may be put off by the title or that there is religion in it (I let this languish on my TBR for almost 2 years for these reasons). Language lovers, writers and other misfits who can‘t be labeled will particularly enjoy this.

Tricia‘s husband asks why would anyone want to be a priest. Her succinct response is so poignant to me. It seems she‘s had a lifetime of people questioning her own choice to be a poet. At some point she reconciled that we all are meant to do different things - and we don‘t have to judge others for what they‘re doing: Poet, Priest, Dog Walker, Baker, Cat Herder - just do what your heart wants to do (and forget the naysayers) - happiness follows.

LauraBeth @Cinfhen I‘d try it in print. This book is shaping up to be nothing what I had thought it was going to be - which is why I‘ve held off reading it. She has a wonderful way of being able to describe everyday things in ways I‘ve thought of before but have never been able to articulate. Also - she is so non-judgmental, which is refreshing in a memoir. She loves her family ❤️ (edited) 4y

I fell in love w Patricia Lockwood‘s brain through these pages. It is strange to be weeping over a chapter in which the author and her mother are contemplating calling the cops due to a potential cumstain on their hotel sheets, but the way she renders it, it is laugh outloud funny and also: so tender. The book is named for her “daddy” but I found her humor/intellect and her relationship with her mother to be the most moving and electric parts.
