Synopsis

Highly acclaimed author and feminist thinker Naomi Wolf was brought up to believe that personal happiness is something that can be taught - and learned. In this magical book, Naomi shares the enduring wisdom of her father, Leonard Wolf, a well-regarded poet and a teacher for sixty years who believes happiness can be achieved by honouring your inner artist.
THE TREEHOUSE begins when Naomi asks her father to help build a treehouse for his granddaughter. Inspired by his dedication to her daughter's imaginative world, she asks her father to walk her through the lessons of his popular poetry class, and show her how he teaches people to see the world with a renewed sense of wonder. Each lesson
became a chapter: 'Be Still and Listen,' 'Use Your Imagination', 'Do
Nothing Without Passion', 'Your Mistakes are Part of the Draft'.

Here is meditation on fathers and daughters, an argument for honouring the creative impulse, and unique instruction in the art of personal happiness.
