A Smile in the Mind's Eye: An Adventure into Zen Philosophy

Lawrence Durrell


Durrell’s impressive memoir of his religious trip with famed Taoist thinker JolanChang

Beginning with their first assembly over lunch at Lawrence Durrell’s Provencal domestic, Durrell and Jolan Chang—renowned Taoist thinker and specialist on jap sexuality—developed an everlasting dating in keeping with mutual non secular exploration. Durrell’s autobiographical rumination on their friendship and on Taoism recounts the author’s existential ponderings, beginning together with his advent to the paranormal and enigmatic “smile within the mind’s eye.” From parsimony, cooking, and yoga to poetry, Petrarch, and Nietzche, a grin within the Mind’s Eye is an enthralling story of a writer’s non secular and philosophical awakening.
