Since he died 50 years ago today, I figured this was a good day to suggest Journal of a Soul: The Autobiography of Pope John XXIII (can also be found from several other publishers).

Should be suitable for Vyrso.

I just happened to come across this little tidbit about Geoffrey Chapman:

"His best known coup was Pope John XXIII's Journal of a Soul. He was up in a glider when the significance of a phone call from a journalist friend in Rome hit him. Pope John had left a diary. He hastily landed, caught the next plane to Rome, saw Pope John's former private secretary, Monsignor Loris Capovilla, tracked down the Italian publisher and signed up for the English language rights on the spot."

Unfortunately, 'Geoffrey Chapman' is what it says on my copy of Jerome, and Logos hasn't had much luck in getting the rights to that one...
