A Novel Approach to Life
As an administrator and teacher at San Antonio's Trinity University for five decades, Coleen Grissom saw the rise of feminism, the sexual revolution, and the tragic deaths of students, friends, and family. This varied collection assembles the best of her speeches probing these and other timely issues, from drug use and freedom of speech to AIDS and racism. More than the sum of its parts, this book, filigreed with pithy literary insights, offers an astute chronicle of its times that gives readers good reasons to embrace literature and life.
