The complete and unedited edition of Thomas Merton’s famous autobiography, one of the greatest works of spiritual pilgrimage ever written.
‘The Seven Storey Mountain is a book one reads with a pencil so as to make it one’s own.’
‘A remarkable book, a classic of its kind, written in a vivid, rich and alert style which ranges from crisp vernacular to passionate eloquence, full of picturesque incident and passing at times into religious ecstasy.’
The Times Literary Supplement
‘A book which may well prove to be of permanent interest in the history of religious experience.’
