Bodhisattva Blues




Long-awaited sequel to The Buddha, Geoff and Me, but also stands alone as an insightful novel of everyday city life

Ed is stuck in a rut - his part-time 'career' is going nowhere, his love life's a joke and his wallet's always empty.

The thing about a rut, though, is at least you know where you are.

So when Ed runs into an old acquaintance and is sucked into a drama of street crime and high-stakes property dealings, he turns to the principles that once served him well. Except - he's not sure if he can still trust them, especially as his Buddhist practice is a bit on the rusty side...

Written by Edward Canfor-Dumas, award-winning screen writer and novelist, this is an urban story with a twist and a wry appreciation of the challenges we face every day - whether we're muddling by, or, like Ed, suffering from a severe case of the bodhisattva blues...

A book for everyone who's ever wondered whether enlightenment really is compatible with the daily commute.
