Days of penance

The Economist reviews Pope Francis: Untying the Knots, by Paul Vallely.
"what this book does demonstrate is that Pope Francis is a tougher, more complex figure than meets the eye. A turbulent life has given the pontiff a subtle sense of the realities of power, and the courage to act on it."
Amazon presently says U.S. publication is scheduled for September 24, 2013.
