There is a tendency for memoirs written by women about The Great Man to be self-abnegating exercises in a kind of inverted narcissism — the author seeking to prove her worth as muse, as consort, as chosen one. Not so with Helen Weaver’s beautiful, plainspoken elegy for her time spent with Jack Kerouac, who suddenly appeared at her door in the West Village one white, frosty morning with Allen Ginsberg, who knew Weaver’s roommate, in tow. — Maureen Callahan

The Daisy Sutra is a deep and touching story of the soul bond of a human being and her dog through death and beyond. How the author discovers that we can communicate with each other, no matter what our species form, opens a gateway for us all to a richer, feeling experience of our life on Earth.
–Penelope Smith, animal communicator and author of Animal Talk: Interspecies Telepathic Communication
Helen Weaver’s story of her beloved dog Daisy will touch the hearts of all dog lovers. Anyone who has a pet they cherish will be inspired by this deeply felt memoir.
–Dan Wakefield, author of Returning: A Spiritual Journey
For anybody who loves dogs, The Daisy Sutra is a treat. For anybody who just loves animals in general, it’s a challenging eye-opener–as well as a touching and charming book, a kind of person-dog love story.
–Michael Korda, author of Another Life
