Review quote

"If Rumi is the most-read poet in America today, Coleman Barks is in good part responsible. His ear for the truly divine madness in Rumi's potrey is truly remarkable."-- Huston Smith, author of "The World's Religions""In this...delightful treasury, Barks sparklingly demonstrates once again why his free-form interpertations of [Rumi's] poetry...have been a major impetus for the current Rumi vogue."-- "Publishers Weekly"
