Praise For…

"I heartily recommend purchasing this book, not merely to add to one's shelf of Merton collectibles, but to read it, stunned by its beauty. It glitters with sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, each flashing with extraordinary power. Everything fits and radiates here. I thought I had read Merton . . . and then I walked into Inchausti's garden of diamonds."—Gray Matthews, The Merton Seasonal
