'“Long Quiet Highway is the autobiography of a thoughtful woman who grounded herself in Eastern thought and Western art—a precise history of Natalie Goldberg’s adventures as a poet, teacher, and spiritual student—a book full of sentiment and anecdote.” —Allen Ginsberg “[Goldberg] describes, in beautiful and simple prose . . . how her time with the Zen master Katagiri Koshi influenced her life and work. Many writers are indebted to her for pointing the way for them to open their hearts in their writing. In this book Goldberg opens her heart to us.” —Library Journal'
