This wonderful collection of humorous, poignant, and revealing stories and anecdotes offers special insight into the university that Father Malloy has served so faithfully. Monk's Notre Dame has a story to tell about nearly every aspect of life at Notre Dame. Father Malloy intersperses fresh insight on traditional campus events, such as new students moving in to the residence halls and the annual bookstore basketball tournament, with lesser-known stories such as the mysterious disappearance and dramatic reappearance of a statue of Father Edward Sorin at the helm of a motorboat on St. Mary’s Lake.
 
Father Malloy also presents charming vignettes about the people who have made Notre Dame the place it is. He offers a personal tribute to the legendary Reverend Theodore M. Hesburgh and includes warm and witty stories about other C.S.C. priests and brothers, such as Charles Doremus ("Father Duck") and Brother Cosmas Guttly, who lived to be 99. Memorable anecdotes about professors, students, and “behind the scenes” workers are also captured in this book.
 
“As someone has remarked, Notre Dame is a carried book. And as a result, it is of necessity a prime locus for storytelling. . . . The origin of this collection of stories and essays was my notion that I had a responsibility to share with others the many tales passed on to me. . . . This book was a labor of love, and I hope my readers can share my pleasure in, once again, telling the stories of a place dear to us all." —Father Edward Malloy, from the Introduction
