Editorial Reviews


“Maybe three times in my life I've wept at the sheer beauty of a book. This is one of those times. There is heartbreak. There is humor. There is joy. There is aliveness and compassion. And there is love, great love.” (Geri Larkin, author of Close to the Ground )

Sid is a magical read, sweet, sad, beautiful. A haunting Zen imagining of the Buddha's life and our own.” (James Ishmael Ford, author of If You're Lucky, Your Heart Will Break )

“Feng tells us, in luminous prose-poem paragraphs, about an ordinary contemporary high school math teacher, whose journey parallels the Buddha’s. Sid reminds me that I, too, ordinary as I am, have Buddha nature, and that my seeking is not in vain. We can all see the morning star if we look.”
(Susan Moon, coeditor of The Hidden Lamp )
