Dorothy Day first read the autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux in 1928 as a thirty-year old convert to Catholicism. Fresh from the radical movements of the day, she found the story of the young saint from the world of the French bourgeoisie colorless, monotonous, and "too small" for her to notice. She wondered what this saint who wrote like a schoolgirl had to offer a world in revolution, a world in need of immediate remedies for the hunger and justice that abounded in it. Her answer came gradually, as over the years she continued to study St. Therese and to reflect on the meaning of her life. The fruit of those years is this biography.
