I am excited to read Buddhaland Brooklyn: A Novel by Richard C. Morais. I haven’t read any of his other novels, but I just saw that he’s also the author of The Hundred-Foot Journey, which was made into a movie with Helen Mirren, among others, and that book is also on my wishlist.
Here’s a short teaser for Buddhaland Brooklyn (from http://www.amazon.com):
“The life of a man is like a ball in the river— no matter what our will wants or desires, we are swept along by an invisible current that finally delivers us to the limitless expanse of the black sea.”
I’m in a period where I’m fascinated with stories of other cultures that take place in different (and for me unfamiliar) places of the world.
Wanna get it yourself and read it with me?
