It often takes a crisis to see what a life's shape has been, to show what really matters. For Peter Conradi, writer, academic, acclaimed biographer of Iris Murdoch, the moment came in 1982. This is his account of the new life-journey he embarked on back then. It is a self-help book for cynics, in which it becomes clear that "going Buddhist" is neither a quick fix, nor a one-shot deal. Conradi explains the point of a religion relevant to Westerners, perishing from the knowingness and nihilism of the age.

From the Publisher:

“Sweating, shaking, giddiness, hyperventilation. Strange animal fright... ” It often takes a crisis to see what a life’s shape has been, to learn what really matters. For Peter Conradi, acclaimed biographer of Iris Murdoch, the moment came in 1982. This is his account of the life–journey on which he subsequently embarked; a self–help book for cynics, it makes clear that “going Buddhist” is neither a quick fix nor a one–shot deal. Drawing on his conversations with Murdoch, and the remarkable letters they exchanged, Conradi seeks to explain the beauty of Buddhism—a religion increasingly relevant to Westerners, “perishing from the nihilism of the age.” Peter Conradi’s recent books include the widely hailed Iris Murdoch: A Life.

About the Author:

Peter Conradi is English Professor Emeritus at The University of Kingston. His most recent book was IRIS MURDOCH: A LIFE, and unpublished letters from Iris Murdoch are also contained in the text of GOING BUDDHIST. He lives in London and Radnorshire.
