Reviews

Praise for Radical Reinvention

Oakes not only treats readers to gorgeous prose, but manages to provide an overview and history of the best of the Catholic faith, without losing momentum. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Honestly, humorously, and irreverently recounted... A clarion call for an institution's radical reinvention. --Booklist

[An] uneasy entry back into the Catholic church, with plenty of F-bombs thrown in for good effect. --Kirkus

Praise for Slanted and Enchanted

An impassioned, optimistic case for indie's vitality that doesn't assume readers are coming to [the] book already well versed in the subject . . . Fresh and perceptive. --San Francisco Chronicle

Oakes is no dry outsider. She believes in what she describes, she contributes to it and she speaks its language. --The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)

As an explanation and excavation of the already fading recent past, it is essential reading. --Publishers Weekly
