American novelist and short-story writer who often drew his inspiration from developments in the Catholic Church, and was known for his studies of Catholic priests in the Midwest. Although not a priest himself, he is known for having captured a "clerical idiom" in postwar North America.
He died in Collegeville, Minnesota on 12 June 1999.

Sy Scholfield quotes him in a letter to Harvey Egan, July, 1959: "Assuming you read this on July 8, it might interest you to know that I was born on that day, 1917, around five o'clock in the afternoon—in time for cocktails."
