The first of seven volumes, this book offers a glance at the inner life of a young pre-monastic Merton. The reader witnesses the insatiably curious graduate student in Greenwich Village give way to the tentative spiritual seeker and brilliant writer. The writings range from playful lists of the things he most loves and hates to more serious entries.

When Thomas Merton died accidentally in Bangkok in 1968, the beloved Trappist monk s will specified that his personal diaries not be published for 25 years -- presumably because they contained his uncensored thoughts and feelings. Now, a quarter of a century has passed since Merton s death, and the journals are the last major piece of writing to appear by the 20th century s most important spiritual writer.The first of seven volumes, Run to the Mountain offers an intimate glimpse at the inner life of a young, pre-monastic Merton. Here readers will witness the insatiably curious graduate student in New York s Greenwich Village give way to the tentative spiritual seeker and brilliant writer. Merton playfully lists everything from his favorite lines of poetry and songs to the things he most loves and hates.Thomas Merton was an inveterate diarist; his journals offer a complete and candid look at the rich transformations of his adult life. As Brother Patrick Hart, general editor of the series notes, Perhaps his best writing can be found in the journals, where he was expressing what was deepest in his heart with no thought of censorship. With their publication we will have as complete a picture of Thomas Merton as we can hope to have. Bookseller Inventory # AAR9780060654757
