From Library Journal
Goldberg's two previous books, Writing Down the Bones (Shambala, 1986) and Wild Mind: Living the Writer's Life ( LJ 10/1/90), offered practical advice on how to be a writer and gave a clear description of how the process of writing, approached as a spiritual exercise, can be a means to gaining insight into the order of things. Her new book is an autobiographical work in which she describes, in beautiful and simple prose, how she came to this discovery and particularly how her time with the Zen master Katagiri Koshi influenced her life and work. Many writers are indebted to her for pointing the way for them to open their hearts in their writing. In this book Goldberg opens her heart to us. Recommended for all types of collections.- Mark Woodhouse, Elmira Coll. Lib., N.Y.
