Jeff Sharlet | Sweet Heaven When I Die: Faith, Faithlessness, and the Country in Between


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.
