About the Author


Thomas Merton (1915-1968) was born in France and came to live in the United States at the age of 24. He received several awards recognizing his contribution to religious study and contemplation, including the Pax Medal in 1963, and remained a devoted spiritualist and a tireless advocate for social justice until his death in 1968. The Sign of Jonas was originally published in 1953.

ROBERT INCHAUSTI is Professor of English at California Polytechnic State University.

Praise For…


"I heartily recommend purchasing this book, not merely to add to one's shelf of Merton collectibles, but to read it, stunned by its beauty. It glitters with sapphires, rubies, and emeralds, each flashing with extraordinary power. Everything fits and radiates here. I thought I had read Merton . . . and then I walked into Inchausti's garden of diamonds."—Gray Matthews, The Merton Seasonal
