Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Although Volya’s wise lectures are helpful to Otto’s search for answers, it is the variety of people they meet and the attitudes [they] carry that are what provide Otto with the evidence and reminders and motivation to decide to live a certain way.” Salem News (Massachusetts)
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
“Alternately hilarious and poignant…A moving yet entertaining and never histrionic account of how an ordinary American family—with a few extraordinary members in its ranks—deals with the overwhelming grief of losing one of their own.” Tricycle: The Buddhist Review
“As we move through life, we search for the little explanations of life and living and making it all come together for us…Lunch with Buddha will ring true with many readers. Highly recommended.” Midwest Book Review
“Merullo offers readers a hero that’s a bit jaded but loving; a little lost but searching…A quiet meditation on life, death, darkness and spirituality, sprinkled with humor, tenderness and stunning landscapes.” - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
