Walking with Kathleen Norris by Robert Waldron

Book Description

A fellow writer's response of his reading-journey through the work, both prose and poetry, of Kathleen Norris, author of the best selling "The Cloister Walk". As in his other books, "Walking with Thomas Merton" and "Walking with Henri Nouwen", Robert Waldron has devoted three seasons (spring, summer, fall) to reading the prose and poetry of Kathleen Norris. Norris is a major commentator on modern spirituality. This is the first full-length commentary on her work to be published. In order to get to know her, the author carefully read her work and responded to it in a daily journal. He chose the journal format because of its intimacy, allowing for spontaneity and quicksilver insights. The journal format also permits the reader a glimpse into the author's soul-scape and will inspire readers of this book to read Norris's work; especially her best selling book, "The Cloister Walk." Waldron considers this to be one of the major spiritual autobiographies of the twentieth century, to be ranked with Thomas Merton's "The Seven Storey Mountain."
