This Brilliant Darkness: A Book of Strangers

Sharlet provides a poignant and wholly intimate portrait of the lives of those who are often overlooked in our society, breathing a sense of humanity into a part of our world that is so often inhumane. A highly recommended book that is at times difficult to take in and difficult to put down.

Radiant Truths: Essential Dispatches, Reports, Confessions, & Other Essays on American Belief

Sharlet's important and thought-provoking book is highly recommended for readers who are interested in our country's culture (both religious and political), creative and literary nonfiction, and well-written, well-argued writing.

Sweet Heaven When I Die

No preface is included, so unless a reader starts with the introspective final essay and works backward, the subtitle is the only indication of the collection's theme. Several essays seem only very tenuously connected to the subject of religious belief and unbelief. But each is compelling on its own and evocatively written, if part of a highly eclectic collection. A good choice for connoisseurs of the personal essay. [See Prepub Alert, 2/7/11.]—Janet Ingraham Dwyer, State Lib. of Ohio, Columbus
