Correspondence: 1927–1987 by Joseph Campbell, edited by Dennis Patrick Slattery and Evans Lansing Smith is a fine addition to The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell series. It is a solid work and a pleasure to read for fans of Joseph Campbell and his works. The book provides a balance of letters written by Joseph Campbell to friends and colleagues with letters written to him by the same people over the span of his adult life starting at age twenty-four. The letters provide a picture of the remarkable life of a man who was both a friend to many and a person engaged in the worlds of ideas, education, and publishing. Correspondents include Angela Gregory, Jean Erdman, John Steinbeck, Ed Ricketts, Alan Watts, Carl Jung, Thomas Mann, and others.
