In July we will reviewing‘Lapsed’ by Monica Dux
Losing your religion is harder than it looks… From devout ten
year old performing the
part of Jesus in a primary school play to blaspheming, undergraduate atheist, Monica
Dux and her attitude to the Catholic Church changed profoundly over a decade.
Eventually, she calmed down and was just ‘lapsed’. Then, on a family trip to Rome, her
young daughter expressed a desire to be baptised. Monica found herself re examining
her own childhood and how Catholicism had shaped her. Was it really out of her system
or was it in her blood for life?
With wry humour and razor
sharp observations, Lapsed is the story of one woman’s
attempt to exorcise her religious upbringing, and to answer the question, is Catholicism
like a blood group and, if so, is it possible to get a total transfusion?
