      For all of the romantic high adventure of the road to becoming a Zen Master this book is remarkable in both its absence of romantic, high adventure and its presence of engrossing and endearing depth.  This still is a Zen Master tale and there surely are some gripping moments, however, what stands out more is that in this biography the Zen Master is absolutely human. It is stunning, actually, just how human he is portrayed.  In the Crooked Cucumber, we see the possibility that losing our tempers or not being a good parent or spouse can still be a part of becoming enlightened.  It’s a super great book for those who run a little more naughty than nice.
