About the Author

Ronald L. Grimes is Professor of Religion and Culture at Wilfrid Laurier University in Ontario, Canada. He is the author of Marrying and Burying: Rites of Passage in a Man's Life (1995) and editor of Readings in Ritual Studies (1996), among other works.


"Grimes' combination of scholarly knowledge, anecdotes, literary essays, and observations on modern culture provide a first-class foundation for this thoroughly absorbing foray into a deeply interesting and relevant subject."-NAPRA ReView "Without question, this is one of the finest books I have read in several decades. It is well written, beautifully printed, and deals with passages of life [and] the rituals that people have or have not developed to cope with them."-William Klassen, The Kitchener-Waterloo Record "A thoughtful, insightful examination...a deeply evocative portrait of life-passage rituals and their meaning in a variety of human contexts."-Library Journal
