Born in Lisbon and raised in Switzerland, Richard C. Morais started his career in journalism in New York City in 1984 and moved to London in 1986, where he lived for seventeen years working for Forbes, before returning to the United States in 2003. He is the editor of Penta, a Barron's website and quarterly magazine, and the author of The Hundred-Foot Journey and Buddhaland Brooklyn.
It is a beautifully-written book to savour and enjoy and will
uplift you for there is a little bit of these characters that are
in us all. With such an enjoyable book I will certainly read it
more than once. * Yorkshire Gazette *
In Buddhaland Brooklyn, Richard C. Morais has created a charming and insightful story about a gentle man's search for his own enlightenment. -- Sarah Clarke, The Torbay Bookshop (Bookseller's Choice: April)
