Summary:
"Habits is a collection of 100-word stories about nuns in America in the twentieth century. The source material is primarily the stories and oral histories of the Sisters of the Order of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota, who, in the 1950s, were the largest Benedictine order in the world. These pieces, somewhere between poetry and prose, explore their daily lives of work, prayer and community"--Page 4 of cover.
