More About Collected Letters of Alan Watts by Alan Watts
 
 
 
Overview
Alan Watts began life in a bucolic British setting, was sent off to schooling that might nurture his gifts, and wound up bumping into Zen Buddhism in a way that would influence several generations. This collection of letters, discovered and lovingly curated by two of his daughters, reveals a wonderfully well-rounded Watts. It includes the charming missives he wrote to his parents through many decades, the back-and-forth with the editors of his many writings, and delightfully rich correspondence with diverse friends and thinkers. Throughout, readers gain an unprecedented and richly personal take on Watts as philosopher, interpreter of Eastern philosophy, and Christian thinker. His thoughts on the big questions -- Why are we here? What is the meaning of existence? -- will resonate with longtime Watts fans as well as seekers new to his work.
