About the Author

Erik Davis is an American journalist, critic, podcaster, counter-public intellectual whose writings have run the gamut from rock criticism to cultural analysis to creative explorations of esoteric mysticism.

Reviews

The book focuses on three people who were, well, highly weird.

With prose as fluid as his subjects' beliefs regarding consensus reality Erik Davis brilliantly dissects three otherworldly experiences and in doing so makes clear how "a decentralized and postmodern nation--the nation Americans still live within, even more fractiously--became codified."
