Buddha’s Dog

Ira Sukrungruang’s Buddha’s Dog & Other Meditations charts one man’s journey toward emotional maturity, to a place of knowledge though not necessarily of comfort. These marvelous essays weather with heart and humor the tumultuous waters of cultural identity, body image, and mortality, to arrive at those bittersweet truths about our flawed yet spirited selves.

– Rigoberto González

Author of Autobiography of My Hungers


Subversive, sorrowful, tender, and sly, Buddha’s Dog & other Meditations is Ira Sukrungruang’s best book yet: a love song to bodies, both canine and human, imperfect and hungry to live.
