“The Long Good Friday” at Medium’s Human Parts.


Several lifetimes ago, I was an ardent Catholic. I was an altar boy, a church janitor’s helper, a bible reader. I prayed every night and went to confession and defended my faith and went on day trips with priests.

I would say the high point was playing Jesus in my church Passion Play. That above photo is from a more recent production.  I remember it fondly now, and tell the story in my new book. Shader.

Here’s an excerpt, just up today, on Medium’s Human Parts.

William F. Buckley makes a cameo.
