About this title


Everything changed the day the Buddha's hand arrived in the mail. These stories are about women of various ethnic backgrounds, from various geographic regions of the U.S., who find themselves in situations that spin wildly out of control or silently disintegrate. Yet, somehow McFerrin's characters maintain their sense of humor, if not their equilibrium.

The Hand of Buddha leads us into a mature, sophisticated territory with playfully erotic, irony and edgy humor.
