A needed partnership …

… Comedy and the Catholic Novel: A Visit with Lee Oser - Crisis Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… there are certain taboos that a Catholic writer has to respect, and those did come up in my writing. Samuel Beckett will violate those taboos, and it’s interesting to watch him do it, and I respect Beckett. As a writer, not as a theologian. Without our taboos we lose the sense of who we are, we lose the reality of our emotions. We become more and more vaporous.”
