America and Other Fictions: On Radical Faith and Post-Religion [9781785358456]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
At a moment of cultural and political crisis, with forces of reaction seemingly ascendant throughout the West, it's fair to ask what use does anyone have for America, God, or any other similar fictions? What use does theological language have for the radical facing the apocalypse? Among the subjects considered: the need for an Augustinian left, legacies of American violence, speaking in tongues, the humanities facing climate change, the maturity of realizing that you will die, how to sail towards Utopia, and witches. 'Ed Simon's essays help readers to understand how we got to this complicated moment in American religious history. Deft, thoughtful, and creatively told.' Kaya Oakes, author of Slanted and Enchanted: The Evolution of Indie Culture
AUTHOR: Ed Simon is a senior editor with the Marginalia Review of Books, a Channel of the Los Angeles Review of Books. He is a regular contributor on the subjects of literature, religion, culture, and politics at many publications including The Atlantic, The Paris Review and Jacobin. He lives in Arlington, Massachusetts.
