James Carroll was born in Chicago and raised in Washington, D.C. He has been a civil rights worker, an antiwar activist and a community organizer in Washington and New York. He was ordained to the priesthood in 1969 and served as Catholic chaplain at Boston University. He left the priesthood to become a novelist and playwright.
