Set on a coastal stretch of Western Australia, Tim Winton's stunning collection of connected stories is about turnings of all kinds -- changes of heart, slow awakenings, nasty surprises and accidents, sudden detours, resolves made or broken. Brothers cease speaking to each other, husbands abandon wives and children, grown men are haunted by childhood fears. People struggle against the weight of their own history and try to reconcile themselves to their place in the world. With extraordinary insight and tenderness, Winton explores the demons and frailties of ordinary people whose lives are not what they had hoped.

In his previous book, Being Upright: Zen Meditation and the Bodhisattva Precepts, Reb Anderson Roshi described how we must become thoroughly grounded in conventional truth through the practice of compassion before we can receive the teachings of the ultimate truth. In The Third Turning of the Wheel, he introduces us to the next stage of our journey by invoking the wisdom of the Samdhinirmocana Sutra. According to Anderson, the main purpose behind this enigmatic sutra is to reconcile the apparent contradictions between the original teachings of the historical Buddha and the later teachings of Mahayana Buddhism. Anderson reflects on the great metaphysical questions proposed in the Samdhinirmocana Sutra—the nature of ultimate reality, the structure of human consciousness, the characteristics of phenomena, the stages of meditation, and the essential qualities of a buddha—with the clarity of a scholar and the insight of a practitioner.

Potomac Turning is the story of four young individuals who discover themselves as they mature from the shared childhood of three of them in San Antonio, Texas, and as the fourth joins during their university days in Washington DC. These two men and two women, who come from different social and racial backgrounds, find their lives to become forever linked until the present day. Two other young individuals mould into the story as it progresses to Calcutta in the last phase. There are overtures even to Latin America. There is sexual discovery and experimentation as well as unrequited love. Descriptions of a Catholic school in Texas are poignant and reminiscent of possibilities. Georgetown in Washington DC, which serves as the backdrop as the students mature to young adults, is described with intimacy and familiarity. The passages about Calcutta, where the story moves rapidly towards finality, are extremely well-written and convey the flavor of that city and its people and the times. This is a highly recommended read for lovers of romance in exotic venues (Laurent Oliver, reviewer, Washington DC).
