Four Men Shaking : Searching For Sanity with Samuel Beckett, Norman Mailer, and My Perfect Zen Teacher
“Shainberg has done the impossible: taken three entirely different lives and woven them together so they form a fourth—an honest, wide-eyed but sage narrator who can both thumb-wrestle and meditate. The book combines humor and wisdom in an original and totally engaging narrative.”
—John Skoyles, author of A Moveable Famine and Secret Frequencies: A New York Education
