This book is funny, dead-on, and thoughtful, a tough combination to pull off. Zurafleff offers a window into an esoteric world, spot-on insights and descriptions, deep honesty. Set at the Asian Art Museum on the National Mall, it's also a hoot of an insider's look at the Smithsonian (names changed, of course) and a subtle investigation of some buddhist/zen principles. A stuff-ful, but ultimately quiet and resonant read.
