QuotationSuzuki books: one of the best to start with is a big fancy book called Zen and Japanese Culture, and it ought to be easier to get hold of than some of the others. Then there was a selection of his stuff in Anchor Books (paperback) series but I forget what it was called. Maybe just Zen. Anything of his you can get, try it out. Zen and Psychoanalysis is real good. Another good Zen book is Paul Reps, Zen Flesh, Zen Bones.
