In this involving and unexpected novel of spiritual questing, a young American travels to India and finds himself tested physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Max Pzoras is the poster child for the American Dream. The child of Greek immigrants who grew up in a dangerous New York housing project, he triumphed over his upbringing and became a successful Wall Street analyst. Yet on the frigid December night that his mother dies of cancer and he’s involved in a violent street scuffle, Max begins to confront the nagging questions he has about life. He begins his search for answers by impulsively traveling to India, first to the foothills of the Himalayas and then to an ashram in the drought-stricken south. With his Westerner’s skepticism, Max wants to see for himself whether a flesh-and-blood man could truly achieve nirvana. He endures extraordinary physical hardships, eventually embarking on a dangerous solitary meditation in a Himalayan cave in an attempt to penetrate the truth about human suffering. Both a page-turning adventure story and a journey of tremendous inner transformation, The Yoga of Max’s Discontent is a compelling novel of spiritual transformation.
