    Joseph Campbell, arguably the greatest mythologist of the twentieth century, was certainly one of our greatest storytellers. This masterfully crafted book interweaves conversations between Campbell and some of the people he inspired, including poet Robert Bly, anthropologist Angeles Arrien, filmmaker David Kennard, Doors drummer John Densmore, psychiatric pioneer Stanislov Grof, Nobel laureate Roger Guillemen, and others. Campbell reflects on subjects ranging from the origins and functions of myth, the role of the artist, and the need for ritual to the ordeals of love and romance.

    The night writers in Cousineau's vesperal collection range from saints, poets, and shamans to astronomers and naturalists, and tells of ancient tales and shining passages from the most brilliant (albeit insomniac) writers of today. These poetic ponderances sing of the falling darkness, revel in dream-time, convey the ache of melancholy, conspire against sleeplessness, vanquish loneliness, contemplate the night sky, rhapsodize on love, and languorously greet the first rays of dawn.

    As indispensable as forgiveness has been to the healing process throughout history, there is another equally profound action that is needed for ultimate reconciliation, which Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mohandas Gandhi, calls the other side of the coin. Turning over the coin of forgiveness, we discover atonement, the half-hidden, much-overlooked other half of the reconciliation process. Beyond Forgiveness shows how acts of atonement - making amends, providing restitution, restoring balance - can relieve us of the pain of the past and give us a hopeful future.

    This book of mythology for the 21st Century is Phil Cousineau's grand opus - his masterwork, in which he gleans from the world's body of myth a stirring vision that offers the potential for "a deep experience of life". The hallmark of myth is a sense of timelessness. The story rings true not only now but through time, and people experiencing myth feel that they are living something larger than themselves. This timelessness is evident in Cousineau's discussions of the mythology of travel, mentors, cities, baseball, and creatures of the night, such as vampires.
