Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo

Otto Ringling is a straightlaced publishing executive with two kids, a lovely wife, a fine home in a fancy New York suburb, and a nagging suspicion that somethings missing. How, then, does he end up on traveling through Middle America with a berobed Mongolian monk? Ah. The real question to ask is, Why?When his sister tricks him into taking her guru on a trip to their childhood home, Otto Ringling, a confirmed skeptic, is not amused. Six days on the road with an enigmatic holy man who answers every question with a riddle is not what he had planned. However, in an effort to westernize his passenger--and amuse himself--he decides to show the monk some American fun along the way. From a chocolate factory in Hershey to a bowling alley in South Bend, from a Cubs game at Wrigley Field to his family farm near Bismarck, Otto is given the remarkable opportunity to see his world--and more important, his life--through someone elses eyes. Gradually, skepticism yields to amazement as he realizes that his companion might just be the real thing.In Roland Merullos masterful hands, Otto tells his story with all the wonder, bemusement, and wry humor of a man who unwittingly finds what he is missing in the most unexpected place.
