Dodging Satan

My Irish/Italian Sometimes Awesome, but Mostly Creepy, Childhood

Gold & Silver EVVY winner! Bronze Illumination Award (Pope Francis won the Gold!!). Bronze ELit Awd! Dodging Satan is a humorous coming-of-age story of a young Catholic girl. At St. Michael’s school in the 60s-70s, Bridget Flaherty’s musings on sadistic nuns, domestic violence, and emerging sexuality will have you in stitches. Bridey creates glorious supernatural worlds—with exorcisms, bird relics, Biblical plagues, even the ‘holy’ in holy water—to cope with family tensions.
