Reviews

"A fascinating series of dialogues with Joseph Campbell, revealing at every turn fresh aspects of his genius, wisdom, and understanding. I hope this much-needed book will be widely read and pondered."
--Richard Adams, author of "Watership Down"

"We don't have enough personal history regarding Joseph Campbell, so [this] book fills a real need."
--Michael Murphy, cofounder of the Esalen Institute

"Blissful! Illuminating! The voice of the master storyteller himself...An outstanding introduction to the great teacher and personalizer of our myths and muses."
--Noel Riley Fitch, author of "Sylvia Beach and the Lost Generation"

"These stories reveal how [Campbell's] sense of the oneness of mythology began and grew over the course of his long and event-filled life journey. As we read them, we experience the warm human presence of a man who spent his life learning from others as well as teaching. Recommended."
