One of the truly great Catholic poets of the 20th century, Clifford J. Laube s devout, evocative, and erudite poems were originally published in some of the most widely read and prestigious periodicals, both Catholic and secular. Born in poverty to a Colorado prospecting couple in 1891, Laube overcame enormous obstacles to become a celebrated figure in Catholic arts and letters editor at the New York Times, President of the Catholic Poetry Society, founder of a small press, and recipient of four honorary doctorates.

This collection of over 100 poems captures the heart and soul of the man his love of the natural world, his attachment to family, and above all, his devotion to the transcendent God as revealed through the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Accompanied by illustrations created by Laube's grand-children and extended family, Broken Crusts will occupy a treasured place in the homes of Catholic families and is especially well suited for students learning about the classical poetic forms in English.
