Quotes & Awards

  • “Otto is such a full human, which is why we can empathize with his questions and immerse ourselves in his experiences. In the end, we are all humanized by the spiritual journey of Dinner with Buddda.”

    Spirituality and Practice

  • “Diners, truck stops, Indian reservations, national landmarks, Las Vegas—all lead the duo down the road to both prayerful seeking and hilarious adventure…[and] lead readers on a thoughtful and memorable journey.”

    Shelf Awareness (starred review)

  • “With six unconventionally religious novels to date, this brave, meditative author has carved a unique niche in American literature.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Masterfully depicts the struggles of practicing mindfulness moment by moment…[The] novel is full of nuanced, thoughtful prose and is an immensely satisfying conclusion to the series.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Merullo offers keen insight into and intelligent assessments of modern American life, but it is his compassionate portrait of a grieving Otto in search of inner tranquility that is most affecting.”


  • “Narrator Sean Runnette moves from the ‘very American’ New York book editor Otto Ringling to his polar opposite brother-in-law, Russian Buddhist monk Volya Rinpoche. Each man sounds unique, charming, and believable, with Rinpoche’s misunderstanding of American words and Ringling’s patient explanations adding both realism and humor.”
