A non fiction book by

 
Durrell's remarkable memoir of his spiritual journey with famed Taoist philosopher JolanChang

Beginning with their first meeting over lunch at Lawrence Durrell's Provencal home, Durrell and Jolan Chang - renowned Taoist philosopher and expert on Eastern sexuality - developed an enduring relationship based on mutual spiritual exploration. Durrell's autobiographical rumination on their friendship and on Taoism recounts the author's existential ponderings, starting with his introduction to the mystical and enigmatic "smile in the mind's eye." From parsimony, cooking, and yoga to poetry, Petrarch, and Nietzche, A Smile in the Mind's Eye is a charming tale of a writer's spiritual and philosophical awakening.
