LOYOLA PRESS INTRODUCES LOYOLA CLASSICS, a series of reprint editions of literary and popular Catholic fiction. Combining a high degree of literary merit with enduring popular appeal, Loyola Classics will attract modern readers interested in the timeless themes of religious fiction. Eight books will be added to the series each year. Each book includes a new introduction by a contemporary writer, as well as discussion questions designed to help deepen the reading experience for both individuals and reading groups. John Powers' classic comic novel of the 1960s Catholic subculture stars Eddie Ryan, a Chicago boy who learns about the important questions in life in his years at an all-boys Catholic school on Chicago's South Side. He views it all through the prism of his Catholic mentality, which often deepens the mystery but sometimes clarifies it.
