The late Michael Bishop had been writing his autobiography for many years.

Titled " From Smock to Cassock, my personal journey ", it is available from Amazon.

Book Review on Amazon

From Smock To Cassock provides a thoroughly enjoying read about an area in which there has not been much written - both the insight into growing up in the English countryside as a farmer's apprentice after World War II, and how someone is 'called' to be a Priest. The writing style is very easy to read and enjoy. From Smock To Cassock has the same positive feel as Frank McCourt's books - Angela's Ashes and 'Tis. This is Michael Bishop's first book and an excellent one at that. As a side note, a Smock and a Cassock are the names given to items of clothing a farmer and a priest wear! I give this book *****.
