Once you enter the convoluted rhythms of Patricia Lockwood's narrative, the poetry speaks to your secret ear, and the memoir comes alive on a cellular level. At the heart of PRIESTDADDY is Lockwood's father, a Lutheran minister who, after seeing THE EXORCIST, experienced a wildly dramatic conversion, ultimately becoming a Catholic priest. The memoir recounts not only Lockwood's childhood and adolescence, but also the months when Lockwood and her husband returned to live with her eccentric father. "My father despises cats. He believes them to be Democrats." Lockwood's performance is dark, erotic, funny, and thought-provoking, often painful but always honest. Her laser humor holds the jubilant tones of one who connects to the absurdity and wonder in her very odd life and delights in sharing.
