Reviews

"This book, in its form and in its content, seems almost without precedent. Its style flows directly from an intensity, an honesty, and a frankness which are rare. It is a poem, a sutra, a tract, a confession, a revelation, a guide to art and life . . . In my opinion this is not merely a good book, it is a great book"—Daniel Rhodes, Crafts Horizons

"What shall we do with our emotions? Suffer them, I hear her saying. The subject she teaches isn't listed in the catalogues. Sooner or later we know we're studying with her. How is she and where? I am okay and growing, and trying to concentrate on really carrying this through. It ain't easy, or comfortable, but here we are, right? Not only the Devil, but the Lord, too, is on earth and doing His work beautifully."—John Cage
