Product Overview

No one explores the borderlands of belief and skepticism quite like Sharlet. He is ingenious, farsighted, and able to excavate the worlds of others, even the flakiest and most fanatical, with uncanny sympathy. Here, he reports back from the far reaches of belief, profiling religious radicals, realists, and escapists.

From the Publisher
Editors Note In this gorgeous collection of essays that has drawn comparisons to the work of Joan Didion, John McPhee, and Norman Mailer, best-selling author Jeff Sharlet reports back from the far reaches of belief, whether in the clear mountain air of ?Sweet Fuck All, Colorado? or in a midnight congregation of anarchists celebrating a victory over police. Like movements in a complex piece of music, Sharlet's dispatches vibrate with all the madness and beauty, the melancholy and aspirations for transcendence, of American life.
