Lions Roar : November 2011
SHAMBHALA SUN NOVEMBER 2011 84 then going far beyond them. In its pages we meet Iranian Jews, female artists and intellectuals, and even an interrogator who quotes Rumi. Love is at the heart of this book in the same way that it is at the heart of Sufism, and Sufi poetry is a rich, lyrical thread that runs throughout. LITTLE PRINCES One Man’s Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal By Conor Grennan William Morrow 2011; 304 pp., $25.99 (cloth) For twenty-nine-year-old Conor Grennan, a volunteer stint at a Nepalese orphanage was supposed to be just stop No. 1 in a yearlong trip around the world. But then he got to know the children and their grim plight. Many of them were not orphans, after all, but victims rescued from human traffickers. Grennan knew he had to do something, and so he took it upon him- self to reunite the boys and girls with their families—a move that put him in hair- raising peril in corrupt, war-torn Nepal. Grennan’s spiritual journey ends with him adopting the Christian faith. Never- theless, his memoir will be of interest to Buddhist readers. Besides the powerful thread of compassion throughout, Little Princes depicts a touching and enlightened friendship between the author and Farid, a sincere Buddhist practitioner. COME, THIEF By Jane Hirshfield Knopf 2011; 112 pp., $25 (cloth) After completing her bachelor’s degree at Princeton as a member of the university’s first graduating class to include women, Jane Hirshfield studied for eight years at the San Francisco Zen Center and Tas- sajara Zen Mountain Center. Now an award-winning poet and translator, she is the author of seven books of poetry, a collection of essays, and three anthologies of the work of women poets of the past. Come, Thief is Hirshfield’s newest book of poems, and though the verse is about ordinary things like a sweater or green- striped melons, it’s both gorgeous and profound. Hirshfield’s work is influenced by her practice of Zen and her knowledge of classical Japanese poetry, and it fre- quently hinges on a moment of insight. THE ALL-SEEING BOY AND THE BLUE SKY OF HAPPINESS A Children’s Parable By Nick Kettles; illustrated by Serena Sax Hallam Snow Lion Publications 2011; 32 pp., $16.95 (cloth) This charming children’s story explores loving-kindness. Our protagonist, the All- Seeing Boy, has an ordinary, mostly happy life, but when the people he loves feel sad, he wants to help them. He is convinced that there really is something he can do, if only he can figure out what it is. Then, one day, the All-Seeing Boy meets a hobo named Jason Carper, Esquire. This hobo has bright blue eyes, a ruby-red coat, and the answer the boy has been looking for. The author and illustrator are donating a percentage of their proceeds from The All-Seeing Boy and the Blue Sky of Happi- ness to SOS Children’s Villages’ work with the Tibetan community. VEGGIYANA: THE DHARMA OF COOKING With 108 Deliciously Easy Vegetarian Recipes By Sandra Garson Wisdom Publications 2011; 360 pp., $19.95 (paper) I was looking for a new vegetarian cook- book with satisfying recipes—a mixture of refreshing and hearty fare—but I’m no longer looking, because Veggiyana offers that perfect feast. It features recipes from around the globe, including cauliflower puttanesca, root vegetable potpie with polenta crust, thick mushroom barley soup, and Turkish pumpkin pancakes. It also has short essays with a Buddhist fla- vor. In some, Sandra Garson focuses on the lore and lure of a particular ingredient, such as sesame seeds or rice. In others, she delves into her colorful experiences pre- paring, serving, and eating meals. Garson, who has worked as a professional caterer, is the founder of Veggiyana, a charity that provides food, kitchen gardens, and nutri- tional education to children, monks, and nuns in numerous monastery schools. ♦
