PAKI S. WRIGHT

FICTION

 

Growing up in New York’s Greenwich Village in a group of radical Reichian bohemians — as a sort of psychiatric guinea pig, while shadowy forces in the government were persecuting Wilhelm Reich for his inventions in weather control and natural healing — wasn’t easy. I tell the tale in my novel, “The All Souls’ Waiting Room: A Black Comedy about Karma and Killing Yourself,” which I started after a trip to Vienna. I was well-published by then (New York Times Book Review, etc.) and wrote the book to make sense of my experience, see if there were any nuggets of wisdom that could help other troubled teenagers, as I had been, as well as tell a fascinating true story.

Paki became a Buddhist about 20 years ago as a way to sort out our sometimes crazy-making culture, and she now edits an online journal called Bohemian Buddhist Review — "Buddhist ethics and wisdom for the modern world" - which publishes articles, essays and books.
