The Saint I Ain’t: Stories from Sycamore Street

the saint i ain’t

my relationship 

with the nuns who taught 

and tyrannized us 

at saint agnes school, 

went downhill from day one 

of first grade.

Sinners, saints and saviors collide in Bobby Johnston’s stories, which chronicle the savagery and poetry of oppressive Catholic upbringing in 1970s Rust-Belt America. Johnston weaves landscapes of transgression and absolution, humor and resilience into his sharp-eyed tapestry of recall.
