Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Dylan Jones is an L.A. waiter who hates his job and has a big dream: to escape servility and poverty and to live a life of wealth and fame. He’s an idea man, as far as his buddy Trevor and his girlfriend Bambi are concerned: an entrepreneur who’ll make things happen to change their lives—some day. So, when Dylan talks to a couple of guys at Café Karma, who’ve just returned from a month-long retreat to an ashram in India, he remembers a documentary he saw about a millionaire Maharishi with a meditation empire, and his entrepreneurial instincts go into overdrive. Ashrams Unlimited is a humorous novel about greed and religion, and the uncomfortable space where they come forth and multiply.
