Self-disclosure, whether in a book or in conversation, is never total and always risky. To see my thoughts about that subject as they appeared on a site called More Than A Review shortly after the 2015 publication of Unsuitable Treasure: An Ex-Jesuit Makes Peace with the Past, click https://www.morethanareview.com/memoir-and-self-disclosure/
This book is prohibitively expensive now because I have retrieved the rights to it and there are few copies in circulation. Nevertheless I think you might enjoy seeing my own descriptions of the book and others’ reviews of it by clicking on this page at Goodreads–that is, if your click happens to make the page accessible to you, which I hope it does: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25814708-unsuitable-treasure.

This is a good day to write my first blog post on this site. My wife and I celebrated our 52nd wedding anniversary three days ago, and today we had a delicious turkey dinner with our two daughters, their husbands, and our step grandson. So I have a great deal to be thankful for. Wishing you all well.
Thanks for joining me!
