Daniel Quinn

Daniel Quinn entered Gethsemani, a Trappist monastery in Kentucky, at the age of nineteen. At the monastery, he came under the guidance of Thomas Merton. Quinn left the monastery without joining the order. In 1976 he left his job in corporate publishing and began work on a manuscript that would become Ishmael. Quinn is also the author of Providence: The Story of a Fifty-Year Quest, The Story of B, and the upcoming sequel My Ishmael.
