A novel about family, open-minded spirituality, and the American road, Lunch with Buddha accompanies the characters from Breakfast with Buddha as they move further along the path toward lasting peace of mind. Facing one of life's greatest emotional challenges, Otto Ringling takes comfort in a loving family and offbeat lessons from eccentric spiritual teacher Volya Rinpoche.
Funny at times, heartbreaking at others, Lunch with Buddha offers a fresh and engaging perspective on the life we live now.
"Merullo's is a beautifully written and compelling story about a man's search for meaning that earnestly and accessibly tackles some well-trodden but universal questions." (Kirkus starred review)

Better than Breakfast!
I love the soothing and calm demeanor of this book in audio format. I find myself drifting off and imagining the landscape, the people, the essence of where they are, what they are doing and what is being said or felt at that moment in time.
This books comes with a sense of sadness, a edge of your seat profoundness. I appreciate the experience of letting a loved one go in this book, different from Breakfast, and I love the break in sadness with a tough of the Rinpoche's unassuming humor.
Every moment of this book brings me close to emotions felt in my own life. I've laughed and cried at many moments throughout. A book I can relate to and yet it still takes me away from my day to day.
Roland Merullo is a genius! His books are relatable, profound, and intense. No matter what religion you are or what level of spiritual awakening you've had, his Buddha books are written in a way that opens a window or a door, they hint at questions that have always lurked in the depths of your mind. I'm in love with this serious and look forward to others written by Roland!
