Summary
"In 1965 Thomas Merton fulfilled a twenty-four-year-old dream and went to live as a hermit beyond the walls of his Trappist monastery. Seven months later, after a secret romance with a woman half his age, he was in danger of losing it all. Yet on the very day that his abbot uncovered the affair, Merton found solace in an unlikely place--the songs of Bob Dylan, who, as fate would have it, was experiencing his own personal and creative crises during the summer of 1966"--Amazon.com
Summary
In a parallel biography of two countercultural icons, a recognized Bob Dylan scholar and veteran editor delves deeply into Dylan’s influence on Thomas Merton’s life and poetry, recounting each man’s interactions with the woman who linked them together—Joan Baez—and shows how each overcame struggles to reach new heights of spiritual and artistic genius
