Greeley's Blackie Ryan stories are reviewed and explicated in this study of the author's novels featuring the delightful and leprechaun like detective. The book surveys detective fiction in which the unique, irrestible, and sometimes irrepressible Blackie Ryan, who is sometimes, but not always, a persona for the author, appears. A composite portrait of Blackie is drawn for the reader. The themes—both sociological and religious—that occur in the fiction are highlighted and explored, as are the various literary devices that the author employs to create his stories. The book includes a "Foreword" written by Andrew M. Greeley, world renowned sociologist, priest, and Professor of Social Science at the university of Chicago.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: The volume approaches Greeleys novels by comparing him to the 19th-century French writer Honoré de Balzac. A prolific and popular author, Balzac recorded his milieu in tremendous detail, created a fictional universe peopled by hundreds of characters, and explored the role of Catholicism in his world. Because of his training as a sociologist, Greeley brings to his novels a thorough knowledge of popular culture and social theory. And because of his experience as a Roman Catholic priest, he has gained special knowledge of vice, virtue, and the workings of the Church. Like Balzac—now a major canonical author—Greeley has created a world of numerous fictional persons, mapped the details of his culture, and explored the place of Catholicism in contemporary life.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: The beautiful and fey - as they say in the old Country - Nuala Anne McGrail has twice before amazed her faithful suitor Dermot Coyne with her psychic ability to "reach back" to the past, discovering a wrong that needs righting. With their wedding only a few weeks away, Dermot hopes he's seen the last of Nuala's "spells" for a while. But he's not a bit surprised when, while paying respects to his grandparents in Chicago's Mount Carmel Cemetery, Nuala points to the grave of the famous bootlegger Jimmy "Sweet Rolls" Sullivan and states in her usual charming and matter-of-fact way that there is nobody buried in it. Like it or not, Dermot finds himself doing the legwork on yet another historic mystery - this time on the odd circumstances surrounding the death of Al Capone's most famous rival.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Andrew M. Greeley, the phenomenally popular novelist and priest, is best known -- and loved -- for his understated Catholic morality and compassionate understanding of human foibles. In The God Game, now available in a brand-new trade paperback edition, Father Greeley takes a new and fascinating twist on an old cliche: What if -- by using a sophisticated computer game with a healthy dose of heavenly intervention -- you really could play God? What if you actually had the power to control other people's lives? This is the dilemma that faces our hero, who quickly finds that being given the kingdom, the power, and the glory is dangerous -- but addictive. The troubles of the people he sees flashing on his computer screen are all too real -- and his troubles are just beginning. . .

Download or Read book The Sense of Love written by Andrew M. Greeley and published by . This book was released on 1992 with total page 83 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Andrew M. Greeley, a priest ordained in the diocese of Chicago nearly four decades ago, has been a noted scholar for many years (a professor of social science at the University of Chicago and the author of scores of books in sociology) and has been a constant best-selling fiction writer since the publication of his first novel, The Cardinal Sins. He has also extended his fiction to include science fiction and detective stories. His mystery solver, Father Blacky, is reminiscent of G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown. With his first major collection of poetry, Andrew M. Greeley takes his place among the priest poets of the Anglo/Roman tradition. Herein Father Greeley examines the sense of love (on all levels--sexual, social, and spiritual) from a variety of perspectives. He is satirical, spiritual, whimsical, surreal, tender with a capacity for love and friendship in the most profound sense of the Christian tradition, and at times even priestly. Above all, he is an Irish wit out of the tradition of the City of Big Shoulders. Essentially a formalist in style, he most often works in the sonnet form (as did many of his priest poet forebears--e.g., John Donne, George Herbert, and Gerard Manley Hopkins), though he is sometimes given to more open forms and even the haiku on occasion. Readers of these poems will find most particularly a celebration of the joy and absurdity of life, the gifts and quirks given to men and women, and the gifts they give to one another and to God. Above all, he celebrates the love relationship between God and his creatures on the levels of eros, philos, and agape.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Father Andrew M. Greeley, one of America's best-loved and most widely read novelists, has delighted readers with his ongoing chronicles of the crazy O'Malleys, a rambunctious but resourceful Irish-American family caught up in the sweep of modern American history. The previous novels in the saga--A Midwinter's Tale, Younger than Springtime, A Christmas Wedding, and September Song--have taken the O'Malleys of Chicago from the aftermath of World War II through the tumultuous upheavals of the sixties. Now, in Second Spring, Charles "Chucky" O'Malley and his growing clan face the promise and pitfalls of the late seventies. It's 1978 and the whole country, exhausted from the twin traumas of Vietnam and Watergate, seems to be suffering from a massive hangover. Chucky O'Malley knows how the country feels; approaching fifty, he finds himself in the grip of a debilitating midlife crisis. Although he has much to be thankful for, including a loving wife and a thriving career as a professional photographer, he does not feel like a success. He hasn't lost his faith, exactly, but he does feel disillusioned and depressed. As he travels the world, from the Vatican, where a new pope is to be selected, to Jimmy Carter's White House, where an overwhelmed president struggles to find a cure for his nation's malaise, Chucky searches for a way to renew his weary spirit. Fortunately, he doesn't have to face this challenge alone. With the loving support of his family, and especially his irrepressible and adoring wife, Rosemarie, he just might rediscover his lost hope and optimism in time for a Second Spring. . . .

Book excerpt/Synopsis: The religious imagination is alive and well in the movies. Contrary to those who criticize Hollywood, popular movies very often have metaphorically represented God on the screen. From Clint Eastwood as an avenging angel in Pale Rider and Nicolas Cage as a lovesick angel in City of Angels to Jessica Lange as an angel of death in All That Jazz, and from George Burns as God in Oh, God! to Audrey Hepburn in Always to pure white light in Fearless and Flatliners, God is very much present in the movies.

Download or Read book Irish Love written by Andrew M. Greeley and published by Forge Books. This book was released on 2002-03-15 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Continuing the enchanting chronicles of the fabulous Nuala Anne McGrail and her spear-carrying husband Dermot, bestselling author Andrew M. Greeley takes them once again to Ireland for another thrill-packed adventure. Back on the Emerald Isle, Nuala and Dermot soon get the feeling that someone is out to get them. They find themselves dodging multiple explosions, and someone starts shooting at Nuala while she is water-skiing in the cold Atlantic. Meanwhile, the handsome parish priest, Father Jack, has given Dermot the diary of a young Chicago newspaperman. Written in the year 1882, the diary tells in horrendous detail an intriguing story of a mass murder and a trumped-up trial in which one of Ireland's greatest heroes was accused of the murders without a shred of evidence. These two stories, ancient and modern, soon get mixed up, and they make for an utterly fascinating tale of murder, betrayal, and redemption with Nuala and her magical powers at the center of it all. Andrew Greeley not only tells us a riveting tale of adventure and derring-do, he gives us a picture of modern-day prosperous Ireland and the engaging and, of course, sometimes villainous people who live there.
