About Me

Longtime gypsy journalist for newspapers and wire small, grande, venti. Just finished first narrative nonfiction book about a modern-day prophet I stumbled across while on assignment in SE Asia. He's built an empire of charity illegally in the squatter slums of Bangkok. The book is THE GOSPEL OF FATHER JOE: Revolutions & Revelations in the Slums of Bangkok

Read about it, search it, review it, buy it, share it here:
TheGospelofFatherJoe.com

Sampling of early reviews:

"[T]he book is really about salvation, about hope amidst the hopeless, about compassion  not as some kind of religious imperative but as lived experience. What makes the book particularly engaging for me, however, is that Barrett writes also as a truth-seeker on his own behalf. " - HUFFINGTONPOST.COM

"Barrett, a veteran journalist, records the inspiring work of Catholic priest Joe Maier in Bangkok's slums. the irascible Father Joe confronts the interweaving effects of slum life, the sex trade, HIV/AIDS, drug addiction and orphanhood." - PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"[It's] partly a story of the two men's friendship, part biography and part a detailing of Father Joe's beliefs about life and the world. It is boosted along by Barrett's writing clear, thoughtful and pleasingly devoid of clichs."
- THE SEATTLE TIMES
