Abstract:

Bestselling author Naomi Wolf was brought up to believe that happiness is something that can be taught--and learned. In this book, she shares the enduring wisdom of her father, a poet and teacher who believes that every person is an artist in their own unique way, and that personal creativity is the secret of happiness. Leonard Wolf is a true eccentric: a tall, craggy, good-looking man in his early eighties, he's the kind of person who can convince otherwise sensible people to quit their jobs and follow their passions. From his youth during the Depression to his bohemian years as a poet in 1950s San Francisco, he's dedicated his life to honoring individualism, creativity, and the inspirational power of art. More than an education in poetry writing, this is a journey of self-discovery in which the creative endeavor is paramount.--publisher description.
