Priestdaddy is a vivid, heartbreakingly funny memoir about balancing identity with family and tradition. It chronicles the eight-month adventure Lockwood and her husband had in her parents’ home after a decade of living on their own, a household run by her father, a Catholic priest. The New York Times named it one of the top ten books of 2017.
Patricia Lockwood was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and raised in all the worst cities of the Midwest. She is the author of two poetry collections, Balloon Pop Outlaw Black and Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals. She lives in Savannah.
