Shozan Jack Haubner is the David Sedaris of Zen Buddhism: a brilliant humorist and analyst of human foibles, whose hilarity is informed by the profound insights that have dawned on him--as he's stumbled and fallen into spiritual practice. Raised in a truly strange family of Mel-Gibson-esque Catholic extremists, he went on to study philosophy (becoming very un-Catholic in the process) and to pursue a career as a screenwriter and stand-up comic in the clubs of L.A. How he went from life in the fast lane to life on the stationary meditation cushion is the subject of this laugh-out-loud funny account of his experiences. "It's amazing how much we can learn from the spiritual mistakes of others," Shozan says, "and in this, I have much to teach. In these self-dissecting pages, I humbly offer myself as your Zen guinea pig in the monastic experiment. The book I've struggled to craft here is the book I desperately searched for when I was lost, angry, and twenty-five. It is the deeply felt journey of a young man who crawled out of the anus of his own self-absorption, suffering, and despair . . . and lived to tell poop jokes about it."
