Product Details

Praise

“Shainberg’s enlightening memoir about three transformative relationships is accessible, deceptively simple, and wise.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Four Men Shaking felt to this reader a deeply necessary utterance, one effortlessly delivered after decades of rigorous preparation. By the time I finished it I was a fifth man shaking, and with gratitude.”—Jonathan Lethem, author of Motherless Brooklyn

“Brilliant. And very moving.”—Mark Epstein MD, author of Advice Not Given: A Guide to Getting Over Yourself

“Where else can you find penetrating insights into the creative and spiritual complexities of daily life alongside no-holds-barred conversations involving literary icons Samuel Beckett and Norman Mailer? Four Men Shaking is engaging from beginning to end, and beyond.”—Rudolph Wurlitzer, author of The Drop Edge of Yonder and Hard Travel to Sacred Places

“Shainberg has done the impossible: taken three entirely different lives and woven them together so they form a fourth—an honest, wide-eyed but sage narrator who can both thumb-wrestle and meditate. The book combines humor and wisdom in an original and totally engaging narrative. I read it with full pleasure.”—John Skoyles, author of A Moveable Famine and Secret Frequencies
