Product description


"Hewitt is an amiable skeptic and a storyteller of rare skill who seems incapable of crafting a dull sentence." --TheAtlantic.com "these pages are full of characters: charismatic leaders, philosophers, quiet activists. It's a brave and well-reported book; these are, after all, his neighbors." --Los Angeles Times
