 Michael Katz

Michael Katz is not only my friend and agent but that of the SF Zen Center, Jack Kornfield, John Tarrant, Edward Brown, Stephen Mitchell and many others. He is also quite familiar with the lectures, teaching, and practice of Shunryu Suzuki and has been an indispensable advisor in the work we're now calling the Crooked Cucumber Archives. He first came to Zen Center in the early seventies to work with the Suzuki lecture tapes and practiced there many years. He was intimately involved with the creation of Crooked Cucumber, Zen Is Right Here, and Thank You and OK! (see DC books). I envision adding greatly to what's here now from and on Michael.(8-15) - DC

There's a lot of old material that's as good as new if you haven't read it. -DC
