Zazen - Vanessa Veselka The author is from Portland; this novel and that city are filled with quirky characters. I enjoyed the story, the turnabout when harmless pranks became harmful, but after that point the author lost me. The main character ponged between angst and apathy with too high a frequency for me, until some of the more stabilizing characters reappeared near the end. I'll probably check out a future book from this author, but cannot gush about this first effort.
