I got the advance copies of my upcoming book, The Way of the Heathen: Practicing Atheism in Everyday Life. Yay!
I am super-excited about this book. I’ve spent many years thinking and writing about what it means to be an atheist: how it affects the meaning of our lives, how it shapes our morality, how we cope with suffering and death without religion, how we form godless communities, how we deal with believers, and how we experience pleasure and joy. The best of that writing is distilled into this book. It’s scheduled for publication June 1, in print, ebook, and audiobook (audiobook might be a little later). You can place an advance order for the print edition now!
And it looks so pretty! Cover designer Casimir Fornalski did an excellent job once again. I especially love how it looks with its companion books, Why Are You Atheists So Angry? and Coming Out Atheist.
I really do think of these books as a set. They reflect the path that many people take when they become atheists — being angry about religion, deciding how to tell people about their atheism, and getting on with their atheist lives. The covers reflect that connection: you could even look at them as telling a story. So excited for June 1!
