|Welcome to the official website of author John Donohue
|I've been banging around dojo
for more than thirty years.
In the process, I've learned a few things:
how we forge connections to things
larger than ourselves,
how conduct, ordeal, and courage
lend dignity to the human condition.
If this sounds interesting, please read on....
|ENZAN: The Far
|The fifth installment in an imaginative martial arts
thriller series..Donohue cleverly intertwines the story
with opinions and interesting perspectives on Eastern
Zen philosophy and the rich history of martial arts, a
direction that not only expands the breadth of the
mystery, but also serves to enlighten his audience
throughout this vivid, exhilarating ride. Multilayered
and satisfying, a welcome and well-developed addition
to an accomplished martial arts series.
It is these insights…that lend Enzan its true promise--
namely to render traditional martial arts practice as a
way of living relevant to the warp and woof of the
modern world. Doing so lifts John Donohue's work into
the mainstream of crime/adventure fiction.
