Summary
"Circuitous Journeys: Modern Spiritual Autobiography provides a close reading and analysis of ten major life stories by twentieth-century leaders, thinkers, and activists from a variety of religious and cultural traditions." "Each text is read in the light of the autobiographical tradition begun by St. Augustine's Confessions, but with an emphasis on distinctively modern and post modern transformations of the self-writing genre."--Jacket
