it has been almost 6 years since my first book, One City : A Declaration of Interdependence was published.
I am really happy to announce that my second nonfiction book about Buddhism entitled, The Road Home, is going to be published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux late next year, or early 2015, approximately. I feel like this book covers the Buddhist teachings from a very personal and also contemporary perspective. In short, it feels like exactly the book I’ve been wanting to write since I began teaching in 2002. I am very happy with the project, excited to work with my editor, and I’m very excited to share it with a whoever wants to read it, which I hope is you. 🙂

“Buddhist Teacher Finds ‘Home’ at FSG
Ethan Nichtern sold The Road Home to Gabriella Doob at Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Lisa Weinert at Lisa Weinert Consulting handled the world-rights deal, and the book is set for winter 2015. Nichtern, who is a regular on the media and lecture circuits, founded the Interdependence Project, a nonprofit started in Manhattan’s East Village in 2007. The project is dedicated to meditation, psychology, and other disciplines related to Buddhism. FSG said that in the book, Nichtern “leads readers on an accessible, humorous, and heartfelt journey… to find our true home in the one place we often fear the most: our own minds.”
