"If you've ever wondered how a messed up kid like you or me might master the wisdom of Zen,One Blade of Grass is the adventure for you. It's great company--and after reading it, you might recognize that you're further along than you imagined." --David Hinton, editor and translator ofThe Four Chinese Classics and author ofThe Wilds of Poetry

One Blade of Grass tells the story of how meditation practice helped Henry Shukman to recover from the depression, anxiety, and chronic eczema he had had since childhood and to integrate a sudden spiritual awakening into his life. By turns humorous and moving, this beautifully written memoir demystifies Zen training, casting its profound insights in simple, lucid language, and takes the reader on a journey of their own, into the hidden treasures of life that contemplative practice can reveal to any of us.

"This heartfelt and beautifully written memoir provides one of the most insightful, informative, and honest accounts of Zen practice yet to appear in English." --Stephen Batchelor, author ofAfter Buddhism
