Vatican newspaper reviews work of US novelist Jodi Picoult
August 24, 2012
L’Osservatore Romano has published a generally positive assessment of the work of populist US novelist Jodi Picoult, who has incorporated bioethical themes into some of her writings.
Giulia Galeotti writes that while Picoult’s work “is not high literature, and various opinions are presented with a kind of Manichaeism,” her novels nonetheless “have the merit of attempting to give depth to very complex issues which current debate (no matter the side) tends to flatten into sterile oppositions.”
