Tributes: Andrew Greeley

Monday, June 03, 2013

At one point, Andrew Greeley mockingly suggested that his obituary would read, “Andrew Greeley, Priest; Wrote Steamy Novels.”  But, in addition to writing sexually frank novels, the Roman Catholic priest was also quite an equal-opportunity maverick, taking on both scandals in the American Catholic church, as well as secular intellectuals.  Andrew M. Greeley died in his sleep at the age of 85.  And you can hear his interview with Leonard from June of 1991.
