What would you like to read next?
Would you like to try something from my part of the world? Just for the kicks of trying to figure out some-one else's cultural references?
I was going to suggest "The God Boy" by Ian Cross. It's very old now, though, and may not be in print anymore. Plus, the Catholicism theme is not (as far as I remember) sympathetically handled. I would not be trying to be insulting in suggesting it, quite the reverse, I'd just be interested in your views, but I'd hate to alienate and offend you.
How about something New Zealand, but not Catholic? "Bulibasha" by Witi Ihimaera. Or "Whalerider" by the same author, if you want a book that has a film attached to it. I can help you with the Maori words and phrases.
Other than that, how about some poetry? There's James K Baxter and also M.K. Joseph, both fine Catholic poets, in my opinion. Baxter was a bit of a renegade; M.K. Joseph was an academic. If you can't get copies, then I could photocopy the stuff and post it to someone. Or scan it to a disk and send it to you.
Best to all
