Thomas Merton on the Vocation of Writing
The many fans of Thomas Merton's writing may be unaware that the famous Trappist monk had much to say about the writing process itself. And his advice is much worth listening to. This volume gathers together much of what he has to say on the subject. Also included are fascinating glimpses of his opinions about other writers of note, among them Henry David Thoreau, Flannery O'Connor, Dylan Thomas, Albert Camus, James Joyce-and even Henry Miller.
