Abstract: Dorothy Day's autobiography traces her life as a young journalist to her journey to faith. Without sentimentality she chronicles her years as a bohemian in Greenwich Village, her love affairs, and her radical politics. She has no regrets about her love of the material world, to her it was an affirmation that material reality brought one closer to God. The book also recounts her long association with Peter Maurin and the development of the Catholic Worker's Movement. With unfailing commitment to the causes of peace, nonviolence, racial justice and the cause of the poor and the outcast she became an inspiration for those following in her footsteps-Thomas Merton, Daniel Berrigan, Cesar Chavez and countless others.
