Latest News and Featured Events

  • What is Zen?: Plain Talk for a Beginner's Mind, by Norman Fischer and Susan Moon, is now out from Shambhala Press. A conversation between two longtime dharma friends, the book is a wonderful response to this mysterious and ultimately unanswerable question. 
  • Norman’s long-awaited collection of essays, Experience: Thinking, Writing, Language & Religion, is now available from University of Alabama Press. These essays, which trace the history of Norman's thoughts on experimental writing as a spiritual practice, represent the distilled insights of a lifetime spent immersed in words and Zen. 

  • We're excited to announce the launch of Norman Fischer Books, a new website dedicated to Norman's published poetry and prose. The site contains a beautifully curated selection of essays and poems, reviews and recordings, as well as an events calendar with listings of Norman's book-related readings and workshops. We hope you enjoy it!
