"Mr. Braudy's narrative spans centuries, continents and genres high and low, from the Sirens that tempted Odysseus to the demons Sarah Michelle Gellar faced down in Buffy the Vampire Slayer."-Andrew Hazlett, Wall Street Journal "Braudy is deft and comprehensive, a veritable Linnaeus of the underworldly oversoul. . . . He also has a kangaroo capacity for crossing huge distances at a bound, moving with equal zest and confidence among biblical, classical, medieval, Enlightenment and Hollywood figures and conceits."-Gregory Maguire, New York Times Book Review "A worthy book - impeccably researched, fluently written and dispassionate in just the way professional historians admire."-Gerard DeGroot, The Times "Leo Braudy is absolutely enchanting in this book that mixes religion with movies, literature, history, psychology, old creeds, legends." -Anna Maria Polidori, Alfemminile Blogspot Finalist for the 2016 Bram Stoker Award in the Superior Achievement in Non-Fiction category
