A nicely written story of spiritual discovery couched in the guise of a road trip.

Book Club read (1/2011). It was a fun novel; but, not earth-shattering for me I think because I already read non-fiction that I think was more powerful about the Dalai Lama that I am convinced this author tried to turn into fiction with this novel. "The Art of Happiness" with Howard C. Cutler and the Dalai Lama is your non-fiction option for this. Although, if you want spiritual journey, mid-life crisis, and road trip in fiction form than this is your book :)
