The life of Nikos Kazantzakis—the author of Zorba the Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ—was as colorful and eventful as his fiction. And nowhere is his life revealed more fully or surprisingly than in his letters. Edited and translated by Kazantzakis scholar Peter Bien, this is the most comprehensive selection of Kazantzakis's letters in any language. One of the most important Greek writers of the twentieth century, Kazantzakis (1883–1957) participated in or witnessed some of the most extraordinary events of his times, including both world wars and the Spanish and Greek civil wars. As a foreign correspondent, an official in several Greek governments, and a political and artistic exile, he led a relentlessly nomadic existence, living in France, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Soviet Union, and England. He visited the Versailles Peace Conference, attended the tenth-anniversary celebration of the Bolshevik Revolution, interviewed Mussolini and Franco, and briefly served as a Greek cabinet minister—all the while producing a stream of novels, poems, plays, travel writing, autobiography, and translations. The letters collected here touch on almost every aspect of Kazantzakis's rich and tumultuous life, and show the genius of a man who was deeply attuned to the artistic, intellectual, and political events of his times.

A young man from Chicago travels west where he is intercepted by Fred, a guru, on the banks of the Colorado River in Utah. Fred invites the young man to go on a journey. It begins with a soul quest in the Utah desert near Moab. He is introduced to Venus, a flesh-and-blood goddess who teaches him about the sensuous. Fred has the young man spend a summer at a small lake where he learns about fishing but more importantly about the real lives of ordinary people. There is also a stay with a cynical professor who holds strong views on the futility of communication. Finally Fred and the young man visit a Trappist monastery. This spiritual and bodily journey takes three years and results in transformation for the young man. Between each of the yearly experiences the young man goes on hiatus to Las Vegas and Phoenix. Eventually he finds his mission in life and his soul place and soul mate. Along the way he accumulates the wisdom of Fred in pithy sayings. Freds wisdom, offbeat but profound, includes lessons for everyone.
