    ANYONE DOUBTING that Buddhism has become mainstream in America - or at least on our coasts - need only read the recent novels of author, screenwriter, and director Bruce Wagner. Take, for instance, his description of the guests at an imagined celebrity get-together in Brentwood, as recounted in his newest novel, Memorial: “the screenwriter Melissa Mathison, the architect Steven Ehrlich, the gardener Nancy Jones, the actress Phoebe Cates, the editor of Tricycle, the editor of the Jewish magazine Tikkun...” Wagner has to explain Tikkun to his readers, but Tricycle apparently needs no introduction.

    Zen Master Who? A Guide to the People and Stories of ZenJames Ishmael FordWisdom Publications, 2006280 pp.; $15.95 (paper) Ford, a Soto Zen priest and Unitarian Universalist minister, has put together a rich and eminently readable resource on Zen in the West. He begins with an overview of the history of Zen, then thoroughly covers the teachers who first came West, the traditions and practices they brought with them, the schools they founded, and their many successors. Ford's engaging portraits of the many personalities that make up Western Zen today are especially interesting and can be read straight through or dipped into here and there for a satisfying taste of any one of the diverse forms the tradition is taking today.
