About the Author

Patrick Curry Dr Patrick Curry is the author of numerous well-regarded scholarly and popular books on topics ranging from environmental ethics to literature and has been a lecturer at the Universities of Kent and Bath Spa.

I was born in Winnipeg Canada but have lived in London for more than forty years. I am divorced with an adult son and step-son and a daughter aged twenty-eight. I have a long relationship with Buddhism (Soto Zen), my main teacher being Kobun Chino Otogawa. I am lucky enough to be able to do quite a lot of what I love best: thinking, writing, reading and teaching (mostly informal). However, I'm also into music, visual art, and photography, and I have a black belt (1st Dan) in karate-kickboxing which has now segued into tai chi.
