Críticas:

""Buddhaland Brooklyn "is a rare gem of a novel in that it is rich with both fabulous description and a juicy plot."

"The world Morais creates is quirky and enchanting. His recurring rumination on the meaning of enlightenment and acceptance is worth savoring."



"Readers who follow Morais's lyrical narrative will find spiritual redemption of their own in his search for the paradisiacal Buddhaland. A vivid portrait of faith lost and found through the eyes of a Japanese Buddhist monk in America."

"Morais has struck gold with this novel, which is simultaneously funny, sad, and enlightening."

"[Morais] has a definite talent for evoking a place - his descriptions of Japan in Buddhaland Brooklyn resonate like watercolors painted on silk panels. The secondary characters are fully realized and the journey to enlightenment is full of entertaining detours."

"A delightful and insightful fish-out-of water tale."

"A charming and touching tale of discovery... certain to be appreciated by those who enjoy reading about the human condition."

"Eloquent, unique, funny, tender, sad, and pristine in its delivery"."--"

"In exquisite prose, "Buddhaland Brooklyn" illuminates the hearts of wholly different cultures - an isolated Buddhist monastery; bustling New York - and also the universal truths of human life. Reverend Seido Oda's journey from shut-down, haughty priest to compassionate religious leader is a profoundly moving one making for a complex, beautiful book that lingers in the imagination long after the last line is read."

--Robin Black, author of "If I loved you, I would tell you this"

Reseña del editor:

Seido Oda spent his boyhood in a small mountainside village in rural Japan. When his parents hand him over to the monks at the nearby Buddhist monastery, he devotes himself to painting, poetry, and prayer—and avoiding human contact. But his quiet life is unexpectedly upended when he is ordered by his superior to open a temple in Brooklyn.

New York is a shock to the introverted Oda, who now must lead a ragtag army of eccentrics who make up the local Buddhist community. After tragedy strikes, Oda finally realizes his own long-buried sadness and spiritual short­comings. It is only with newly opened eyes that Oda comes to find in Brooklyn the home he has always sought.
