Father Greg Lockwood is unlike any Catholic priest you have ever met --- a man who lounges in boxer shorts, loves action movies, and constantly jams on the guitar. His daughter is an irreverent poet who long ago left the Church’s country. When an unexpected crisis leads her and her husband to move back into her parents’ rectory, their two worlds collide. In PRIESTDADDY, Patricia Lockwood interweaves emblematic moments from her childhood and adolescence with scenes that chronicle the eight-month adventure she and her husband had in her parents’ household after a decade of living on their own.
