Chia Tao (779-843), an erstwhile Zen monk who became a poet during China's Tang dynasty, recorded the lives of the sages, masters, immortals, and hermits who helped establish the great spiritual tradition of Zen Buddhism in China.

Presented in both the original Chinese and Mike O'Connor's beautifully crafted English translation, When I Find You Again, It Will Be in Mountains brings to life this preeminent poet and his glorious religious tradition, offering the fullest translation of Chia Tao's poems to date.

In The Press

"It is astonishing that Chia Tao, a uniquely clear-tempered poet of hard luck, Zen sobriety, and durable friendship, has not had a full translation until now. The wait has been worth it... A crisp introduction and well informed bibliography are all the more reason to light a stick of incense."
