With candor, sensitivity, and great insight, Monica Furlong recounts the remarkable life of one of the century's spiritual giants. Here is the complete Thomas Merton: his bohemian and often troubled youth in France and England; the dramatic conversion to Catholicism; entry into a Trappist monasery; the controversial career as teacher, writer, and social activist; his tragic death in Thailand, and his lasting relevance as a fearless prober of truth and possibility. Includes an Index.
