From the back of the book:
Parts novel, autoethnography, diary, travel writing, how-to, philosophy, transpersonal study, this story begins in death, as a personal interest, before becoming a doctoral psychology dissertation at the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology and then this book. It explores the cult of Santa Muerte, the Mexican folk saint, and the author's relationship with that twilight world as well as the author's own personal process of living and writing about death in Mexico City. It is because of death that life has meaning.
