Excellent treatment of the life of Thomas Merton, with photographs. If the only Merton you know is the one who wrote "The Seven Storey Mountain", there is much to learn here. Fascinating discussions of his views on war, race and Buddhism. It also explores his ambiguous relationship with the Trappists in great detail. Well worth reading.
