RARA-AVIS: Buddhism in Stansberry's The Confession

From: William Denton ( buff@pobox.com)
Date: 14 Nov 2004

I just finished THE CONFESSION (2004) by Dominic Stansberry, and enjoyed it quite a bit. Mr. Bludis who called this middle-class noir last month
[1]. It's got the classic noir feel right from the start.

There are a number of mentions of Buddhism in it: a Laughing Buddha statue, for example, and a few other things (though I may be adding some that weren't there, because I just read a magazine review of two books about Buddhism). Anyone care to comment on them and what they're there for? It all deals with Jake Danser's, uh, personality problems, but why Buddhism?
