Overview

Do survivors-of trauma, loss, abuse-gain a "secret knowledge" about life from their experience? Mark Matousek, a survivor fascinated with the enigma of survival, draws on interviews with an enslaved Sudanese boy, a Tibetan nun tortured for her belief, an Auschwitz prisoner, a Vietnam P.O.W., as well as noted thinkers and spiritual teachers Ram Daas, Stanley Kunitz, Eckhart Tolle, and Mother Meera. In distilling the many experiences, Matousek shows how enduring hardship can transform a person, refine his character, and alchemize catastrophe into living wisdom. "In interviews with a range of subjects, from Elie Wiesel to Joan Didion, Matousek plumbs the depth of human tragedy and pain to find redemptive possibilities...A valuable guide for those who are looking to deal with traumatic and life-changing events." -Rocky Mountain News Mark Matousek is the author of two memoirs, The Boy He Left Behind and Sex Death Enlightenment. He is a contributing editor for O and Tricycle and has served as senior editor of Interview. He has written for the New Yorker, the New York Times magazine, Details, Vogue, AARP magazine, the Utne Reader, Out, Yoga Journal, and others. He lives in New York City.
