BUDDHA AND THE SLUT

Summary: What happens when an award-winning writer hits 'eject' on the 9 to 5, grabs a backpack, and dives head-first into the weird and wild world of 'digital nomads'? After 7 YEARS in Asia, Europe, and parts unknown, BROOKE BURGESS (Broken Saints, Becoming, The Cat's Maw) shares candid tales of culture shock, creative inspiration, sex and relationships, psychedelics and spirituality, and much MUCH more... It's a mid-life renaissance man's 'Eat, Pray, Love' — but with the naughty bits proudly intact — it's BUDDHA AND THE SLUT!
