37 Down, 15 To Go (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

J.C. Hallman's The Devil Is a Gentleman: Exploring America's Religious Fringe is more than the title suggests. Yes, Hallman does visit and investigate several fringe religions, but along the way provides a very readable biography of William James. Hallman has created a 21st century version of The Varieties of Religious Experience, visiting Wiccans, satanists, and others and giving an honest, unbiased account of the practitioners as people as well as believers.

My next book is Louis Riel: A Comic-Strip Biography, by Chester Brown.
