Reviews

"These narratives enter the territory of the transcendent, the unmapped realm of the soul . . . Michael Guista has made it his business to practice a kind of brilliant, learned unknowingness, to hold dramatic uncertainties in front of us so that everyday madness can be viewed through the multiple dimensions of therapy and theology."
