Our Lady Of The Fragile Humanity: Colm Tóibín On Dramatizing The Virgin Mary
"I realized that I was playing with fire. Some neighbors, and indeed some friends, despite their views on the Catholic church itself, still had a deep devotion to Mary as the grieving mother of God ... Even in my pages Mary indeed remained an icon. I wished to give her a voice, let her speak, but I had no interest in reducing her or bringing her down to size." The New York Times 04/07/13
