America Magazine Reads McGregor's Pure Act

28th October 2015

America Magazine, one of the leading publications on news and culture from the Christian perspective, features an article in their November 2, 2015 issue about Michael N. McGregor’s new book, Pure Act: The Uncommon Life of Robert Lax.

The major interest of Pure Act lies in its tracing of the stages of a totally poetic life. Robert Lax was not born for the labors of a 9-to-5 day. After college he had a brief job answering letters at The New Yorker, but the ambiance intimidated him. At Jubilee later he was judged undependable because he got so lost in his own poetry and journaling. And then began his years of wandering—the docks of Marseilles, the shrine of La Salette in the French Alps, the center of Jean Vanier near Paris—and wondering what he should do.”                    -America Magazine
