Sharlet profiles religious radicals, realists, and escapists in this wide-ranging collection of linked essays. Including extended journeys published here for the first time, Sweet Heaven When I Die offers a portrait of our spiritual landscape that calls to mind Joan Didion's classic Slouching Towards Bethlehem.
Jeff Sharlet is the author of The Family and C Street, and a contributing editor to Rolling Stone and Harper's. He teaches creative nonfiction at Dartmouth College.

No one explores the borderlands of belief and skepticism quite like Jeff Sharlet. He is ingenious, farsighted, and able to excavate the worlds of others, even the flakiest and most fanatical, with uncanny sympathy.
