We're used to seeing Zen written of in the way of the Beat poets. Chase Twichell has opened another path in this superb book. I can't think of a better poet conveying the actual experience of entering practice. Perhaps because Twichell is first a poet--the subject matter here is particular, but the sheer talent is what lets her write about Zen overtly in a way that is not ponderous, didactic, or imitative of either the Beats or the classical Buddhist poets of Japan, Korea, and China.
