J. F. Powers (who signs Jim Powers in his letters to Merton) was an novelist and author of short stories. He was from St. Cloud, Minnesota. The Midwest and Catholicism are a common backdrop for his stories, often telling tales of priests caught between idealism and the realities of parish life. From the 1950's to the mid-1970's, he and his family lived part time in Wicklow, Ireland. (Source: "Powers, J. F." Obituary from Current Biography. Wilson Biographies Plus. Online. H.W. Wilson.
