For Linda and Ed, with affection and admiration, Michael Novak New year 2010

1197. The Tiber Was Silver, by Michael Novak (read 14 Nov 1972) This was published in 1960 and I found it a tremendously moving book. While it is a novel, it reeks authenticity, telling of a year of a seminarian in Rome. The protagonist (unlike the author) perseveres and the book ends with his ordination. The book is very well-done and easy to read, tho full of talk. ( )
