I am one of the "lay" members but have read everything Percy has written (am currently re-reading "The Moviegoer", which I first read in 1973). I just happened to come upon "Love in the Ruins" at a bookstore in New Orleans in 1988 and read it by the pool at what was then the Clarion Hotel on Canal Street. It would not be an exaggeration to say that reading Percy has changed my life. The first thing I thought of as I watched the events in New Orleans transpire that first few days was that it was right out of "Love in the Ruins". The odd thing is that recently I had felt that "love in the Ruins" had become somewhat "passé"!
