In what amounts to Campbell's only spiritual autobiography, this beautifully crafted collection of conversations, interviews, and outtakes from the The Hero's Journey documentary reveals and illuminates Campbell's personal and intellectual journey. Warm and relaxed, Campbell is first seen sipping Glenlivet and encouraging his mentee, Cousineau. Then, as described by Publishers Weekly, ?the book ranges widely, from Cro-Magnon art to Arthurian legend?as it follows Campbell from his Catholic boyhood and early interest in American Indians to his years in Paris and Munich." Readers listen in as he meets Jung (who discusses the meaning of the Hindu syllable, ?Om"); hear Campbell quip, ?if marriage isn't a first priority in your life, you're not married"; and learn the genesis of Campbell's trademark, ?follow your bliss." As Richard Adams wrote, it reveals ?at every turn fresh aspects of his genius, wisdom, and understanding."

Industry 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."
