A real look at details of life inside a monastary

I was given this book as reading for a course in Japanese religion taught by a former zen monk who had become a professor of Japanese religion after marrying the daughter of the abbott of the monastary he trained at. (Japanese monks are not required to be celibate.) He thought it was the best description of actual life in a monastary he had seen. Don't expect this book to give you deep flashes in insight into the nature of things- instead it is a light-hearted look at how traditional monks actually lived the monastic life, and should balance out any of the heavier reading one might encounter while exploring zen.
