The Stone Boy and other stories (1996)
By Thich Nhat Hanh

Parallax Press

Published in 1996, The Stone Boy remains a perennial favorite of mine, written by Zen master and teacher, Thich Nhat Hahn. He is a master storyteller and poet, and this collection of short fictional stories explores the universal themes of love and compassion, against a backdrop of Vietnamese culture and his own spiritual experiences. I personally appreciate being introduced to another culture, and particularly when the author is able to show how the thread of human connection transcends the visible world. These stories are infused with cathartic wisdom that permeates your soul, and showers you with sparks of inner awakening to the sacredness of all life. If words define our reality, this clustering of words articulates a mindful and luminous world of interconnection.
