Imprint[S.l.] : [s.n.]. 1961
QuotationThere is no easy way to thank you for your book. Not only are the good words about books all used up and ruined, but the honesty of The Moviegoer makes one more sensitive than usual about the usual nonsense. With reticence and malaise, then, I think your book is right on the target.
Quotation SourceThe Courage for Truth: Letters of Thomas Merton to Writers.; Selected and edited by Christine M. Bochen. / New York : Farrar Straus Giroux. 1993, p. 281
