Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo, 323 pages

Breakfast with Buddha is a book club selection for two of the library's book clubs this year.  It is a novel that reads like a memoir.

Otto Ringling is a happily married father of two, living in New York, with a good job in the publishing industry.  His parents recently died and he and his flaky sister Cecilia need to sell the family farm in North Dakota.

Cecilia is afraid to fly so Otto agrees to drive her from her home in New Jersey to North Dakota.  When Otto gets to her house he finds out she wants him to drive her guru, Volya Rinpoche there instead.  And . . . she wants her portion of the family farm to go to the guru.  A long road trip and enlightenment ensues.
