"Like the depth that comes with mindful breathing, Thich Nhat Hanh's restrained prose plumbs both visible and invisible worlds with skill and ease. These are brilliant, powerful— verging on cathartic—stories infused with penetrating wisdom and united by inner awakening to the sacredness of all life."
In The Stone Boy and Other Stories, Thich Nhat Hanh's newly assembled collection of short fiction, the well-known Zen monk and peace activist explores Buddhist themes of love and compassion while introducing the reader to the treasures of Vietnamese culture. A gifted wordsmith and storyteller, Nhat Hanh uses the medium of short fiction to examine the difficult themes of war, exodus, living in exile, egoism, institutional oppression, and the master disciple relationship. Weaving the actual and the magical into a seamless tapestry, he guides the reader to the realization of the miraculousness of daily life and the interconnectedness — "interbeing" — of all things. Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Buddhist monk. His life-long efforts to generate peace and reconciliation moved Martin Luther King Jr. to nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1967. He is the founder of Van Hanh Buddhist University in Saigon, and has taught at Columbia University and the Sorbonne. He is the author of Being Peace, Under the Banyan Tree, The Path of Emancipation, and 85 other books.
