Riassunto:

“Well-written, absorbing, and a great pleasure to read . . . will appeal to Christians struggling to square their traditional beliefs with acceptance of homosexuality as well as to all those interested in adoption, lesbian marriage, and the changing shape of America?s families.?

—Elizabeth C. Fine, Virginia Tech University

 

Waiting for the Call takes readers from the foothills of the Appalachians—where Jacqueline Taylor was brought up in a strict evangelical household—to contemporary Chicago, where she and her lesbian partner are raising a family. In a voice by turns comic and loving, Taylor recounts the amazing journey that took her in profoundly different directions from those she or her parents could have ever envisioned.

 

Taylor?s father was a Southern Baptist preacher, and she struggled to deal with his strictures as well as her mother?s manic-depressive episodes. After leaving for college, Taylor finds herself questioning her faith and identity, questions that continue to mount when—after two divorces, a doctoral degree, and her first kiss with a woman—she discovers her own lesbianism and begins a most untraditional family that grows to include two adopted children from Peru.

 

Even as she celebrates and cherishes this new family, Taylor insists on the possibility of maintaining a loving connection to her religious roots. While she and her partner search for the best way to explain adoption to their children and answer the inevitable question, “Which one is your mom?? they also seek out a church that will unite their love of family and their faith. Told in the great storytelling tradition of the American South, full of deep feeling and wry humor, Waiting for the Call engagingly demonstrates how one woman bridged the gulf between faith and sexual identity without abandoning her principles.

 

L'autore: Jacqueline Taylor is the Director of the DePaul University Humanities Center. She teaches in the areas of performance studies, women's studies and gender and communication. She is also the author of Grace Paley: Illuminating the Dark Lives. Her essays have been published in Text and Performance Quarterly, Southern Speech Communication Journal, and Women's Studies in Communication.

Descrizione libro The University of Michigan Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Waiting for the Call: From Preacher's Daughter to Lesbian Mom, Jacqueline Taylor, Growing up, Jacqueline Taylor was the ideal preacher's daughter. In the conservative communities of Pennsylvania and Kentucky where she lived, Taylor never questioned the solid pillars of the faith that informed her and her family's entire life. As she matures, however, Taylor's independent spirit and restless intellect begin to unravel the rigid fabric of belief that enfolds her world. Hoping to escape the watchful eyes of her parents and her church, Taylor leaves for college and almost immediately marries. After that relationship fails - much to her parents' disappointment - she finds herself married again. Her world is further shaken when her mother (normally a typically proper and straight-laced Baptist preacher's wife) experiences a wildly manic episode that shocks the church community and the family's very foundations. Despite the widening gap between Taylor and her parents, she takes on the role of caregiver to her mother. When Taylor finally realizes she is lesbian, she breaks with every tradition she has ever known and embarks on a new life, finding love with another woman and eventually adopting two Peruvian infants, Grace and Lucy. Through these experiences Taylor discovers not only a way to love and be in the world that allows her at last to hear her call, but an unexpected and deeply meaningful path to renewed communication and reconnection to her parents and community. "Waiting for the Call" is the story of one woman's discovery of herself and of the faith she feared may have fled in the hour of her greatest need. At times funny, uplifting, sad, and profoundly stirring, but always emotionally honest and courageous, "Waiting for the Call" reminds us that we can remain true to ourselves without abandoning our principles.
