Travels with Ted and Ned

Theodore M. Hesburgh, Author, Jerry Reedy, Editor Doubleday Books $19 (320p) ISBN 978-0-385-26681-9
In their first year of retirement, Hesburgh, a Catholic priest, and his executive sidekick, Ned Joyce, also a priest, traveled around the world, enjoying the freedom of their first sabbatical. Hesburgh, whose 35-year tenure as president of the University of Notre Dame is recounted in God, Country, Notre Dame (coauthored with Reedy), kept a diary of this year of traveling. It began in 1989 with a tour of the U.S. in a ``recreational vehicle'' and continued with world cruises, expeditions to Central and South America and a trip to Antarctica. Hospitable Notre Dame alumni met the companionable and open-minded Hesburgh and Joyce at nearly every stop. The book vividly captures their many ports of call as well as their performance of ministry. With humor and urbanity, Hesburgh concludes that retirement is only relative to one's working life and can be enjoyed by ``totally changing one's ordinary way of life without coming apart at the seams.''
