Mark Salzman – The Laughing Sutra

Posted by Dirk under: books .

The first Mark Salzman book I read was Iron & Silk, a non-fiction book about the 2 years he spent teaching English in China while studying Kung Fu. It’s a really good book.

This book is also pretty good, though it’s fiction. The story is about a young Chinese man who travels to America to find the Laughing Sutra and bring it back to China so the old monk who raised him can read it before he die.

Along the way he meets a mysterious old man named Colonel Sun, a master martial artist, who decides to accompany him.

It’s a good book. Light and easy to read.
