Buechner is one of my all-time favorites; his books are so amazing. I would highly recommend that you find the four volumes of his autobiography -- the life he has led, and the tragedy he has overcome, are remarkable. One of the best ways to experience Buechner is to actually hear him speak -- and as such I would highly recommend that you visit this site: http://www.cathedral.org/cathedral/video/spring06.shtml. There was a tribute to Fred Buechner at the National Cathedral last spring, and in addition to having other authors sing his praises, he spoke and read excerpts from his most recent book, "Secrets in the Dark." It was so remarkable that I bought the DVD! Go to the link and scroll down about halfway to find the link to his evening.

I've written to him three times, and he was written back each time. If you're ever so moved as to want to contact him, e-mail me off-list and I'll be more than happy to provide you with his address. He's a very gracious man and very generous with those who get in touch with him.
