A stirring portrait of her father and his unconventional wisdom on how to live, love and see the world with wonder.
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.
