Afterzen

(1999)
Experiences of a Zen Student Out on His Ear
A non fiction book by

 
 
On one level a collection of unorthodox solutions to classic Zen Buddhist koans or riddles, the eagerly-awaited final volume of van de Wetering's "Zen" trilogy is just as much an installment of the author's witty and engaging autobiography. van de Wetering's comments on the questions philosophy raises are mirrored in his encounters with a wildly varied group of characters beautifully "collaged" as the author says, "from bits and pieces of fellow students and seekers who kindly came my way." He has discovered the ideal way to produce a work on Zen - and life - that is insightful, humorous and very human.
