A gospel of shame : children, sexual abuse and the Catholic Church by Elinor Burkett ( Book )
7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Opening with the story of James Porter, a former priest scheduled to be tried in late 1993 for mass molestation, the book uses interviews with victims to examine children's unique vulnerability to priests and with priest abusers to explore their dangerous isolation. It documents the failure of prosecutors, judges, psychologists and reporters to monitor bishops, who spend millions of dollars to protect the Church's image rather than its believers. Finally, it dares to ask - and answer - the question of why such a seemingly disproportionate number of priests molest children. Without indicting the Church, Burkett and Bruni argue that the demands of the priesthood and the hierarchical structure decreed by Rome foster a climate perilous to the young. Their insights are culled from extensive interviews with many of the nation's foremost experts on child sexual abuse and even some of the Catholic Church's most respected American bishops

Ambling into history the unlikely odyssey of George W. Bush by Frank Bruni ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
[The author], the principal New York Times reporter assigned to cover George W. Bush's presidential campaign and first eight months in the White House, mines the countless hours during which he observed and interacted with Bush to present sides of the president that readers have never encountered. He looks to small moments for big truths, going behind the scenes and offering fresh insights into Bush's often chronicled weaknesses, sometimes overlooked strengths, and his journey - alternately earnest and reluctant - from an innate levity to a newfound gravity. [He] also takes readers on his own trip through the strange maze of presidential politics, wryly chronicling life in the insular "bubble" of political reporting and its frequently dispiriting effect on the coverage that politicians get.-Back cover

Born round [the secret history of a full-time eater] by Frank Bruni ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The New York Times restaurant critic's heartbreaking and hilarious account of how he learned to love food just enough after decades of struggling with his outsize appetite. Frank Bruni was born round. Round as in stout, chubby, and hungry, always and endlessly hungry. He grew up in a big, loud Italian family in White Plains, New York, where meals were epic, outsize affairs. At those meals, he demonstrated one of his foremost qualifications for his future career: an epic, outsize love of food. But Bruni's relationship with eating was tricky, and his difficulties with managing it began early. When Bruni was named the restaurant critic for The New York Times in 2004, he knew enough to be nervous. The restaurant critic at the Times performs one of the most closely watched tasks in the epicurean universe; a bumpy ride was certain, especially for someone who had never written about food, someone who for years had been busy writing about politics, presidential campaigns, and the pope. What qualified him to be one of the most loved and hated tastemakers in the New York food world? Did his decades-long obsession with food suffice? Food was his friend and enemy both, something he craved but feared, and his new-job jitters focused primarily on whether he'd finally made some sense of that relationship. In this coveted job, he'd face down his enemy at meal after indulgent meal. As his grandmother often put it, "Born round, you don't die square." Would he fall back into his old habits or could he establish a truce with the food on his plate? Born Round traces the highly unusual path Bruni traveled to become a restaurant critic; it is the captivating account of an unpredictable journalistic ride from an intern's desk at Newsweek to a dream job at The New York Times , as well as the brutally honest story of Bruni's lifelong, often painful, struggle with food. Born Round will speak to any hungry hedonist who has ever had to rein in an appetite to avoid letting out a waistband and will delight anyone interested in matters of family, matters of the heart, and the big role food plays in them
