NEW BOOK by Claude AnShin Thomas

On the Edges of Sleep – Poems of War and Memory
In his first book of poetry, Vietnam combat veteran and Zen Buddhist monk Claude AnShin Thomas explores the boundaries of awareness; the landscape of longing; and the lasting, invisible wounds of war.

Book Review

“In his first book of poetry, Claude AnShin Thomas, a Zen Buddhist monk and combat veteran of the American war in Vietnam, bears witness to the human experience of war and of life in its aftermath. Through his poetry, which is a profound study of courageous introspection and self-examination, AnShin Thomas expresses the sensitivity, insight, wisdom, and understanding that has enabled him to unselfishly help many victims of trauma, moral injury, and war (including myself).
Besides being an interesting work of poetry, AnShin Thomas’ On the Edges of Sleep is an important revelatory and therapeutic experience for spiritual seekers, victims of trauma, and a must-read for those impacted by war.”
— Camillo Mac Bica, author of “Beyond PTSD, The Moral Casualties of War”
