Holy foreskin! AN IRREVERENT CURIOSITY is now in paperback.

David Farley - AN IRREVERENT CURIOSITY David Farley's An Irreverent Curiosity: In Search of the Church's Strangest Relic in Italy's Oddest Town is now available in paperback.

We profiled An Irreverent Curiosity in an earlier post, and the book is even more appealing at US $12.48 (the Amazon paperback price) than it was as a $25.00 hardcover. (Got a Kindle? The e-book edition is yours for US $9.99.)

Sally Law of The New Yorker interviewed David Farley about the book last August. The result of the interview, a "Book Bench" Q&A, is an entertaining read.
