Buddha Doesn’t Need To Go On A Diet

Buddha doesn’t need to go on a diet is about love (or perhaps not), about growing up in those times when John Lennon left the Beatles and Tito left Yugoslavia, and also about emptiness and fullness, about an arrogant boss, reeds at the seashore, a full moon, a franciscan monastery, a big bang, one chocolate cake too much and about compassion and the simple fact of breathing. It holds up a mirror to the contemporary everyman’s aspirations, pleading for being rather than achieving. Engaging, both serious and funny, one of the best novels to come out in Slovenia in recent years.
