About this product
- DescriptionEd is stuck in a rut - his part-time 'career' is going where, his love life's a joke and his wallet's always empty. The thing about a rut, though, is at least you kw where you are. So when Ed runs into an old acquaintance and is sucked into a drama of street crime and high-stakes property dealings, he turns to the principles that once served him well. Except - he's t sure if he can still trust them, especially as his Buddhist practice is a bit on the rusty side...Written by Edward Canfor-Dumas, award-winning screen writer and velist, this is an urban story with a twist and a wry appreciation of the challenges we face every day - whether we're muddling by, or, like Ed, suffering from a severe case of the bodhisattva blues...A book for everyone who's ever wondered whether enlightenment really is compatible with the daily commute.
