UST Libraries Catholic Fiction for the College Student blog offers the reader works of fiction within a Catholicism setting. Catholic Fiction for the College Student is directed mainly to students to encourage the reading of good Catholic fiction during their time here at the University of St. Thomas. Hopefully, instilling such a habit will lead to a life-long appreciation of the genre, provide enjoyment in reading great literature and give the reader valuable insights that can enrich one’s life.
Certainly Catholic fiction is not the only good kind of fiction. It’s not the only fiction that deals with issues of great spiritual depth. In addition, what exactly constitutes Catholic fiction is difficult to define. Of course there are the classics that everyone considers great Catholic fiction: works by Flannery O’Connor, Walker Percy, Evelyn Waugh, etc. Flannery O’Connor said that Catholic fiction is a “Catholic mind looking at anything.” Our Catholic Fiction for the College Student blog reflects Flannery O’Connor viewpoint.
