Overview

In this powerful collection of writing guru Natalie Goldberg's poetry and paintings, the celebrated author of Writing Down the Bones focuses her attention on the shifting rhythms of interior life in poems that bring a Zen-like insight into the wondrous simultaneity of all things past, present, and future.

With the same uncompromising integrity and commitment of Natalie Goldberg's bestselling books on creativity and writing, full-color reproductions of the her brilliant original paintings, and the introductory essay “How Poetry Saved My Life,” Top of My Lungs gives the reader complete access to a compelling vision, one that is both simple and complex, both withdrawn from and full of life.

Author Biography: Natalie Goldberg is the author of seven books, including Writing Down the Bones, which has sold over one million copies and has been translated into ten languages. For the past twenty-five years, she has been practicing Zen meditation and teaching seminars in writing as a spiritual practice.
