William Irwin gives readers a deeply moving and insightful work into human relationships, our connection to others, the nature of reality, the pursuit of flourishing, and human nature in general. Little Siddhartha centers on three generations of family and explores how they respond to the pressures of life, their place in the world, and the fractured relationships that result. Starting with the younger Siddhartha’s mantra of “Eat, drink, and be merry,” and ending with a concerted chant of “Om,” Irwin weaves a tale that explores the spiritual recesses of human existence, calling on readers to understand, forgive, and most importantly, to listen.
