Through a reading of Augustine's Confessions, Paul Monette's Borrowed Time. An AIDS Memour and Mary Daly's Outercourse. The Bedazzling Voyage, this article explores the ways in which autobiographers negotiate the relationships between their private spiritual selves, public Christianity, and the reader as they chronicle their lives I argue that, although all three of these writers use the same textual strategies, how these strategies are employed reveals distinct differences in the ways that reconciled and alienated selves can tell their stories.
