Richard C. Morais & Morgan Stebbins

Richard C. Morais talks about his novel Buddhaland Brooklyn with Morgan Stebbins

Buddhaland Brooklyn is an insightful look at the changing cultural and spiritual landscape of New York City, and the sometimes humorous, often moving encounters between cultures. Morais, a Buddhist scholar, tells the story of a solitary Japanese monk who is entrusted with the duty of starting a temple in contemporary Brooklyn to explore the complex—and often confusing—ways that faith and spirituality bring people together across cultures, and the power that ultimately stems from those connections. Morais reads an excerpt from the book and chats with Jungian psychoanalyst Morgan Stebbins.
