Book Preview: Zen And The Art Of Faking It

Zen And The Art Of Faking It
Zen and the Art of Faking It by Jordan Sonnenblick

The only other Sonnenblick book I’ve read is After Ever After, which I call the funniest sad book I’ve ever read. I picked up Zen and the Art of Faking it because of After Ever After, and because I was the kind of kid who wanted to move away and reinvent myself, which is essentially what the protagonist, San Lee, does. Concealing the fact that he’s adopted and that his father is in jail, San decides to present himself as a Zen Buddhist, drawing on his the beliefs and mores of his culture.

How hard is it, though, to pretend you’re someone that you’re not?
