The author explores manifestations of the divine in his daily life in this blend of spiritual meditation and memoir.

Tapping spiritual sources that range from the silence of the Buddha to the words of Robert Forst, James Carse uncovers the rich paradoxes of everyday experience and emerges as a genuine American mystic. Breakfast at the Victory, Carse writes, is "an invitation to see how extraordinary the ordinary is." After reading it, life may never appear the same.

Praise for Breakfast at the Victory

"Carse has the wondrous gift of seeing the whole universe in a grain of sand. Starting from deceptively small beginnings, he opens up a whole world of daily miracles." —Pico Iyer, author of Video Night in Kathmandu

"Succeed[s] in teaching a kind of vision and appreciation for the otherwise regular and humdrum." —Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Plainspoken yet brilliant." —Booklist

"This thought-provoking book turns ordinary experiences on their heads, almost forcing readers to find the mystical in their own subjective engagement of daily events. . . . [Carse] brings the profound within the grasp of everyone." —Publishers Weekly
