A PBS documentary and accompanying article about Percy's life and career as an author. Percy's philosophical beliefs guided much of his work, but his goal was about the journey: "It has to do not so much with an explicit faith or transmitting an explicit faith in my writings as it has to do with a view of man, of a theory of man, man as more than organism, more than consumer, man the wayfarer. Man the pilgrim. Man in transit. On a journey."
