Janwillem Lincoln v an de Wetering ) March 12, 1931, Rotterdam, The Netherlands - July 4, 2008, State Maine, USA A Dutch writer of a predominantly detective genre, as well as an author of books on Zen Buddhism, who wrote in Dutch and English, a merchant, a sculptor, a traveler, a policeman. Janville Van de Wetering was born on March 12, 1931 in Rotterdam, where he spent his childhood. Subsequently, the writer lived in different countries - South Africa, Japan, England, Columbia, Peru, Australia, until he settled in the United States, in Surrey, Maine. When writing the book "Empty Mirror" he lived for two years in a Zen Buddhist monastery in Kyoto. The writer died on July 4, 2008 from cancer. First of all, Vetering is known for his books in the detective genre. Using his own experience in the police force in Amsterdam, he wrote a series of novels and stories, the protagonists of which were two police officers from Amsterdam, Grijpstra and de Geer. In his detective stories, there are many descriptions and city sketches of Amsterdam. Interestingly, Wetering wrote books about Grijpstra and de Guier while living in the United States. There he also created a cycle of children`s books about a porcupine named Hugh Pine. In addition to detective stories and short stories for children, Wetering also wrote nonfiction based on his extensive personal experience. In particular, the writer spent a year in one of the Buddhist monasteries in Japan, after which he wrote the book "Empty Mirror" (in Russia it was also published under the title "Japan. A Year in a Zen Buddhist Monastery"). Also Van de Wetering wrote 4 radio plays. As a rule, Wetering wrote first in Dutch and then in English. Therefore, the two versions are often drastically different. In 1984 Janville van de Wetering was awarded the French Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere.  Wikipedia , Wikipedia .  Bibliography Grijpstra and de Gier novels 1975 - Outsider in Amsterdam 1976 - Tumbleweed 1976 - The Corpse on the Dike 1977 - Death of a Hawker 1977 - The Japanese Corpse 1978 - The Blond Baboon 1979 - The Maine Massacre 1981 - The Mind-Murders 1983 - The Streetbird 1985 - The Rattle-Rat 1986 - Hard Rain 1994 - Just A Corpse at Twilight 1996 - The Hollow-Eyed Angel 1997 - The Perfidious Parrot 1999 - The Amsterdam Cops : Collected Stories (anthology) replaces the anthology The Sergeant`s Cat and Other Stories Children`s Books 1978 - Little Owl 1980 - Hugh Pine 1981 - Hugh Pine and the Good Place 1983 - Hugh Pine and Something Else [b ] Other fiction 1982 - The Butterfly Hunter 1982 - Bliss and Bluster 1985 - Inspector Saito`s Small Satori (anthology) 1986 - Murder by Remote Control (graphic novel, with Paul Kirchner) 1988 - Seesaw Millions, 1995 - Mangrove Mama and Other Tropical Tales of Terror (anthology) 1997 - Judge Dee Plays His Lute: A Play and Selected Myster y Stories (anthology; includes the original play Judge Dee Plays his Lute and a selection from other anthologies) Documentary 1971 - The Empty Mirror: Experiences in a Japanese Zen Monastery - "An Empty Mirror" or "Japan: A Year in Zen- Buddhist monastery "1975 - A Glimpse of Nothingness: Experiences in an American Zen Community 1988 - Robert Van Gulik: His Life, His Work 1999 - Afterzen: Experiences of a Zen Student out on His Ear Articles and stories not included in books Astral Bodies and Tantric Sex. The New York Times, January 10, 1988.
