'''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'd planned. But 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 else's eyes. Gradually, skepticism yields to amazement as he realizes that his companion might just be the real thing. <br><br>In Roland Merullo's masterful hands, Otto tells his story with all the wonder, bemusement, and wry humor of a man who unwittingly finds what he's missing in the most unexpected place.<br><br>A sequel, entitled Lunch with Buddha, is now available.<span> </span>In a starred review, Kirkus magazine called this novel which continues the journey of Otto and Rinpoche, a beautifully written and compelling story about a man's search for meaning that earnestly and accessibly tackles some well-trodden but universal questions and a quiet meditation on life, death, darkness and spirituality, sprinkled with humor, tenderness and stunning landscapes. <span> </span>'''
