This revolutionary Buddhist text has already become a minor classic in Zen literature. During dark nights of the soul, the book instructs, we can only follow the Three Guides: No Blame, Be Kind, Love Everything. Author Terrance Keenan's world - boyhood Catholicism, alcoholism, the struggles of maintaining honest relationships with his wife and children - is a mirror for every serious reader who wishes to make sense of life.

Terrance Keenan is a Zen priest in Syracuse, New York.From Publishers Weekly:
"To be lonely is to be among people who do not know what you mean," quotes Keenan, a librarian, poet and Zen Buddhist priest. While Keenan's spiritual memoir offers many moments of epiphany, there are other times when the above quote seems to describe the book itself, which can be abstruse. It chronicles Keenan's personal struggle with alcoholism (which, in the spirit of Anne Lamott, makes for some of the most profound passages in the book) and the difficulties of personal relationships. Despite the shadowy nature of Keenan's writing style, his book is worth reading for his flowing reflections on topics ranging from karma to Kafka. Particularly intriguing are his thoughts on writer's block, meditation, Japanese poetry and fatherhood.
