Dessert with Buddha (Paperback)
Dessert with Buddha takes the eccentric monk, Volya Rinpoche, and his skeptical, brother-in-law, Otto, on another enlightening road trip filled with meals, humor, social commentary, and good times. The couple that traveled from New York to North Dakota in Breakfast with Buddha, Seattle to North Dakota in Lunch, and North Dakota to Vegas in Dinner heads from Boston to points south. They meet an array of intriguing characters--from a former NBA star to a Holocaust survivor, from an A.M.E. preacher to a hedge fund executive, from a Syrian refugee to a homeless North Carolinian--tour famous American sights, and enjoy the kinds of conversations about spirituality that have engrossed hundreds of thousands of readers from China to Turkey to Croatia, and in every U.S. state. Otto's sister, Cecelia, his daughter Natasha, son Anthony, and niece Shelsa, all have roles in the story, as the famous duo pilots a hybrid pickup along back roads and superhighways, toward the series' climactic finish.
