Expect a major revelation about Rt. Rev. Paul Moore, Jr., in THE NEW YOR...
Honor Moore, the oldest of Paul Moore, Jr.'s nine children, reveals some major surprises about her father in a new book, THE BISHOP'S DAUGHTER, which will be released on May 19th. The next issue of THE NEW YORKER (due out on March 1st) will carry a substantial advance excerpt from the book -- an excerpt which discloses the secret. For those too young to know, Paul Moore, Jr. was the Bishop of New York from 1972 to 1989. He died on May Day, 2003.) I read the book in an early draft many, many months ago. Hold onto your seats. A tiny excerpt, without the big secret, appears at http://tinyurl.com/235gt4 In ADAM BEDE, George Eliot wrote, "If you would maintain the slightest belief in human heroism, you must never make a pilgrimage to see the hero." I disagree. THE BISHOP's DAUGHTER takes us on a pilgrimage at close range with one of my heroes, and he survives the scrutiny. Honor Moore will be accused of being an iconoclast, but she is not. Flesh and blood icons are far more valuable than those made of marble or granite. The book is also deeply moving about the bishop's daughter, its main, if not its most sensational, subject.
