Fiction

This fictional short-story collection challenges perceptions and illusions about religious masters, spiritual teachers, gurus, charlatans and holy men and women of all persuasions, while simultaneously tickling our funny bone and exercising the muscles our faces rely on for laughter. Zen Master Tova Tarantino Toshiba takes liberty with questionable material from the living sea, near Egypt; tofu paper, in Okinawa; a tomb, in Italy; a shaman, in Ethiopia; and a half-sister, in India. The words, quotes, koans and stories, of this soon to be classical work, include the timeless insights of Let the Wormís Go, Dead Food, Reality Bites, Stealing the Buddha, Drip After Drip, Sound of One Eye, Catching Wind, Looking Good, My Catís Enlightened, Chocolate Box, and Sex, Drugs and Sushi Rolls.

"Enlightenment or laughs? With Gabriel Constansí book you donít have to choose. Zen masters usually have a sense of humor, or need one. Gabrielís got it, and he gives us a world of illusions to laugh about." Bob Fenster, author of Duh: The Stupid History of the Human Race
