DETAILS

Author: George Crane
Publisher: Bantam
ISBN / UPC: 0553106503
Condition: New/ Barely Used
Short Summary: In the steady hands of poet George Crane, previously unknown Zen master Tsung Tsai comes off as truly extraordinary. A "poet, philosopher, house builder, scientist, doctor, and when necessary, kung fu ass-kicker," Tsung Tsai would still be wandering about anonymously if it were not, Crane says, for the need of financing provided by an advance on this book. The last of the monks from his Chinese monastery, Tsung Tsai felt he had to return one last time to find and honor his master's bones and rekindle his tradition. Crane recounts their joint adventure, opening with Tsung Tsai's harrowing decades-earlier escape from newly communist China, walking from Inner Mongolia to Hong Kong through a war-torn, famine-struck, psychotic land, nearly starving along the way. Crane, a self-styled hedonist ne'er-do-well, who says that meditation makes him nauseous, sets the stage for an entrancing buddy story back to China with this highly disciplined but carefree Zen master. As their mutual affection grows, Crane absorbs Tsung Tsai's spare but demanding philosophy, which sustains them through the base poverty of northern China, a life-threatening 18-hour climb up and down a treacherous mountain, and a confrontation with a master of black magic. A page-turner and an eye-opener, Bones of the Master is worth every penny of that advance. --Brian Bruya
Keywords: Hardback and dust jacket in excellent condition.

What is ADD TO WISHLIST?
If there is an item you would like to get via 2SWAP, but it is not currently available on the site, or you do not have a 2SWAP credit in your account, you can add that item to your 2SWAP wishlist. You can add a specific item to your list, or a category of items - for example, "Cook Books." Then, when a matching item becomes available, you will receive an e-mail notification so you can claim it (assuming you have at least one credit in your 2SWAP account).

Note: For each book you request we will deduct 1 swap credit from your account.

What is HAVE IT?
Click the HAVE IT button if you already own an item and want to list it in your 2SWAP account so other members can request it. This is a bit quicker than entering the ISBN or UPC number.
