Hallelujah, it's a book After proving itself to be the "e;funniest calendar of the year"e; (according to Gene Shalit), "e;irresistible"e; (USA Weekend), and "e;habit-forming"e; (Maxim magazine), the Nuns Having Fun calendar has inspired "e;Nuns Having Fun,"e; a book of endearing nuttiness.
Catholic kitsch doesn't get any funnier. Written by Maureen Kelly and Jeffrey Stone, pitch-perfect co-authors of the nuns calendar and the "e;New York Times"e; bestseller "e;Growing Up Catholic,"e; "e;Nuns Having Fun"e; features hundreds of sisters in full habit, cutting loose and having a hoot. Here are nuns in the surf ("e;This is even more fun than walking on water"e;), nuns in bumper cars ("e;We brake for Jesus"e;), nuns in a beer hall ("e;Ale Marys"e;), and nuns in the museum, huddled in front of a study of nudes ("e;It's okay to open your eyes. Sister Wendy says it's art"e;). There are nuns on skates, at bat, at the theater, skeet shooting (nuns with guns ), even hitting the slots (you know it's for a good cause). The 125 images are from the 1950s and '60s, black-and-white and possessing a pure retro charm; the written material is all-new. Drawing on their years as parochial school students, the authors explore the lore and legends surrounding nuns, including Favorite Punishments from Nuns, Nuns Say the Darndest Things, How to Recognize a Nun After Vatican II, a Wimple Watch, and List of People Who Could Have Been Nuns.
As Sister says, "e;To err is human. To laugh is divine."e;
