This is an outlandish, quirky exposure of one woman's fix on God -- his surrealistic depravities, her own lusts and horrors, their vital marriage. A Nun's Diary expresses a poetic theology that has as much to do with contemporary morality and love as it does with the institutions and traditions of Christianity. It is very funny -- the humour both bawdy and black -- and brilliant in its perceptions of what women, if they departed from conventional assessments, might think of men.
