Worlds Within Worlds

The Catholic William F. Buckley Jr.

Miracle in East Harlem

Real Lace Revisited

Worlds with IN Worlds

"An invaluable and absorbing chronicle filled with rare, elegant historical scholarship....Whether coursing through the fortunes and misfortunes of the Kennedy and Buckley families; celebrating the horseracing, hellraising and hilarity of Saratoga Springs; reminiscing about his own and others’ days at Portsmouth Priory and the “Grottlesex” schools; pubcrawling in storied New York taverns; or brooding about the sexual abuse scandals and the plight of the Catholic Church in America, MacGuire is an attentive, shrewd, and incomparably entertaining companion for anyone who wishes to tour Irish America’s most curious precincts."

Michael O. Garvey,

author of Confessions of a Catholic Worker


"Wow - just wow. This collection of writing so perfectly captures the feeling of family. The writing is stunningly beautiful, as are the small moments this book so successfully sought to capture. A must read."
