Peter Doobinin is the author of Daylight Saving Time, Suburban Boy, and The Skill of Living. The novels Daylight Saving Time and Suburban Boy are the first two books in his projected "Long Island trilogy." The Skill of Living is a product of his many years teaching the dharma, the Buddha's path of wisdom and compassion.
After working in the publishing industry, Peter left in 1998 to pursue less worldly interests. Since then he's been a founder of New York Insight, Downtown Meditation Community, and Berlin Dharma. He's taught the dharma, in New York City and Berlin, for more than 20 years. He lives in Berlin.
