Robert Kiely is Loker Professor of English and American Literature and Master of Adams House at Harvard University, Cambrdge. He is the author of several books on 19th and 20th-century fiction. He lectures on the novel, the Bible, and Christian literature.Review:
“Much autobiographical writing falls short of the spiritual dimension, which gives it real depth and universality. Robert Kiely rises above this tendency in his view of his life taken at a mature midpoint.”—Laurence Freeman O.S.B.
"This is a book that carefully and even wisely teaches the reader, if not quite how, then surely why we need to 'keep still'...this is a trip well worth the taking, one which may well surprise other readers into realizing that, for all their rich uniqueness, monastic communities are more like other human groups than they are unlike them."

“Erasmus thought that comic sense brought us close to understanding fallen humanity in relation to God. Robert Kiely’s reflections on the spiritual challenges of mid-life are in that great humanist tradition.”—Jill Ker Conway, author of The Road from Coorain and True North
"In this arresting spiritual memoir, Kiely describes his encounter with Main and what the practice of contemplative meditation means to him. [This book] is worth tracking down if one wants to get into the heart and soul of a person whose humanity is nurtured by faith, prayer, and service to others. I very much enjoyed these sketches and look for more in the future."
—Lawrence S. Cunningham, Commonweal, November 9, 2001
