MAYBE HE REMEMBERS THIS STORY BUT I'LL UNDERSTAND IF HE DOESN'T!

Brother Jorn must have received a copy of John Updike's BOOK Rabbit Run and asked me if I would read it as he didn't have the time to review it anytime soon (it was probably 1965). I believe Bro. Jorn mentioned that Christian theology had an influence on Updike's work as did Catcher in the Rye author, J.D. Salinger. Given that I loved Salinger's two books, I thought "sure I'd give it a read." Yikes! Rabbit Run's depiction of marital infidelity and (hmm, how do I say this in a Catholic website?) "sexual detail" went far beyond Catcher in the Rye and would give Philip Roth's "Portnoy's Complaint" a run for its money.

A few days after I returned the book he quietly said to me, "have your parents or anyone at school seen you reading that book." He apologized profusely and said that he was not aware of how explicit the book was. I assured him that my lips would be sealed and jokingly asked him if I needed to go to confession. I'm sure the Archbishop of the St. Louis diocese isn't going to reprimand him for this funny incident that happened nearly 50 years ago and I hope that his fellow brothers in India won't rib him too much.
