I am finally, after five years, ready to seek a publisher for Through the Looking-Glass: An American Buddhist Life, available for download here on this site. I am gratified that many of you have read this text or one of the various early drafts and have provided favorable feedback, everything from “It’s a real page-turner” to “It sure has, uh, a lot of pages.”
I am looking for a few distinguished people who are reasonably familiar with this text to write a blurb, much like one finds on the back cover of a book. I don’t expect any readers of my blog to be arbitrary people, but by distinguished I suppose one of the following is meant in this context:
- The Dalai Lama,
- Other Monastics or Buddhist teachers,
- Authors or journalists.
If you would like to submit a blurb, I would like to have them by about September 17 (one week’s time).
