The Bad Catholic's Guide to Wine, Whiskey, & Song

A Spirited Look at Catholic Life & Lore from the Apocalypse to Zinfandel

"All saints suffer one way or another but there are no sad saints. As this book makes abundantly clear, some more than others had the gift of earthly gladness which, by not being lived as an end in itself, points the way to heavenly joy." — Rev. George Rutler, Author, Theologian, Host, Eternal Word Television Network

"Silly some of the time, respectful most of the time and hilarious all of the time, even the squirrel recipes sound delicious and will have me driving slower thru the red states, chumming for low cost snacks on the two lane all the way to Mardi Gras." — Mario Batali, Chef, Host of "Molto Mario," "Mario Eats Italy," and"Ciao America" on The Food Network. Author, The Babbo Cookbook

"Thanks to John Zmirak and Denise Matychowiak's uproarious cornucopia of Catholic fun, now we can laugh ourselves up and out of literary purgatory. Their sharp-witted irreverence seldom fails to amuse--because they know the Church so well, and love her so dearly." — Thomas McArdle, White House Speechwriter, former Communications Director, The Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights

"This ingenious guide will leave you educated and entertained. A comical yet dignified must-read." — Erik Blauberg, Chef, former Executive Chef, The `21' Club
