Lawrence Shainberg will speak about and sign his new book, Four Men Shaking: Searching for Sanity with Samuel Beckett, Norman Mailer, and My Perfect Zen Teacher, on Thursday, September 19th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
“Inexplicably good karma” — to this, author Lawrence Shainberg attributes a life filled with relationships with legendary writers and renowned Buddhist teachers. In Four Men Shaking he weaves together the narratives of three relationships: his literary friendships with Samuel Beckett and Norman Mailer, and his teacher-student relationship with Zen master Kyudo Nakagawa Roshi. In Shainberg’s lifelong pursuit of both writing and Zen practice, each of these men represents an important aspect of his experience.
