Imprint[S.l.] : [s.n.]. 1959
QuotationThe book about the New Yorker-Thurber's-oppresses me. Civilization oppresses me, or rather all that is new in it does-the most comforting thing in the book is the sketch on the cover-a boat in one of the Manhattan docks. The only good thing about New York is that you can sail from there to France.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 318
