Naked before thee a religious autobiography

New York: Vantage Press, 1977. [iii], 152p., boards in dj, typical Vantage production qualities. Jacket is irregularly sunned, lower margins of casing show some dings.

Quite ordinary "mother of six and grandmother of three" (authorial photo shows her in permed and proper late middle age) recounts extraordinary mystical states; she asked for these and got 'em. Sincere but a little "off." In places her claims seem megalomaniacal and spooky, without intellectual content except for received Catholic wisdom. But-- whether psychosis, possession, or real mystical insight-- unusual.
