About the Author:

Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk, is perhaps the foremost spiritual of the twentieth century. His diaries, social commentary, and spiritual writings continue to be widely read thirty years after his untimely death in 1968.

From Library Journal:

During the years 1964-65, Merton sought, and was finally given, permission to live alone in his hermitage at the Abbey of Gethsemani. These years were criticalhe had to balance commitment to the demands of the monastic community with the call to a more solitary lifeand the writing from that time is consequently charged with disappointments and uncertainties, as well as quiet reflection and humor. Merton's frustration with church complacency and the censorship of his ideas is evident, a factor that probably hindered publication of this journal until now. But he also records musings, dreams, the visits of special friends. A very personal piece of writing blending "heavenliness and anguish," wherein unfolds its special appeal. Carol J. Lichtenberg, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman
