Here Comes Everybody!: Stories of Church by Tim Unsworth, hardcover, dustjacket 226 pages, condition very good
Unsworth's stories are true. (Details have been changed to protect both saints and sinners.) Some are simply hilarious, like the one about Phil, the gas station proprietor with the empty condom machine in the station's men's room, or the monks who got in trouble because they loaned their jeep to Catholic gays who used it to pull a float in the annual Gay Pride parade. But there are serious stories, too, about such unforgettable characters as the priest who sold his chalice to serve the poor, the homeless man who enriched a parish, the mail carrier who shares "the good news," and a woman dying of AIDS at a Catholic hospice.
