              *** 'You will laugh and cry, but you will not be sorry that you read this rollicking story.' - Malachy McCourt 'An unforgettable wild right from start to finish.' - John Bruning, New York Times bestselling author of Indestructible 'Donohue's memoir is a fascinating, vividly narra...ted recollection of the chaos of the Vietnam war.' - Publishers Weekly A CRAZY ADVENTURE IN A CRAZY WAR. Following a rowdy night at his local New York bar, ex-Marine and merchant seaman Chick Donohue decides to complete a legendary mission. He will travel to Vietnam, track down his buddies in combat and bring them a cold beer from home. It'll be the greatest beer run ever! Now, decades on from 1968, he recounts the remarkable true story of how he actually did it. Armed with Irish luck and a backpack full of alcohol, Chick works his passage to Vietnam, lands in Qui Nhon and begins to track down his serving friends one by one. But things quickly go awry, and as he talks his way through checkpoints and unwittingly into dangerous situations, Chick sees a lot more of the war than he ever anticipated - spending a terrifying time in the Demilitarized Zone and getting caught up in Saigon during the Tet Offensive. With indomitable spirit, Chick survives on his wits, but what he finds in Vietnam comes as a shock. By the end of his epic adventure, battered and exhausted, Chick finds himself questioning why his friends were ever led into the war in the first place.

              All the Restaurants in New York is a collection of these drawings, characterized by their appealingly loose and gently distorted lines. These transportive images are intentionally spare, leaving the viewer room to layer on their own meaning and draw connections to their own memor...ies of a place, of a time, of an atmosphere. From romantic spots like Le Bernardin to beloved holes-in-the-wall like Corner Bistro, John Donohue renders people's favorite restaurants in a manner that captures the emotional pull a certain place can have on the hearts of New Yorkers. Featuring an eclectic mix of 100 restaurants--from Minetta Tavern to Frankies 457 and River Caf --this charming collection of drawings is accompanied by interviews with the owners, chefs, and loyal patrons of these much-loved restaurants.

              Chie Miyazaki is wild and spoiled the pampered child of a cadet line of the imperial House of Japan. Minders have attempted to keep her drug use and sex life under control, or at least out of the tabloids. When she disappears in the United States accompanied by a slick Korean boy...friend, it sets off alarm bells among people in Japan s security apparatus. The disgrace of a member of the Imperial house is one thing, but US intelligence has picked up hints that the Korean boyfriend may be taking orders from Pyongyang. The Japanese want the problem solved quietly. They seek out Connor Burke, prize student of the master martial arts sensei Yamashita. Burke s sensei left the service of the Imperial House years ago for reasons buried in the past. Now Burke accepts the charge to seek out the errant princess, suspecting that he s somehow being used but also convinced that he needs to spare Yamashita from the dangers of a mission that could be his last. Compelled by the need to protect his master, Burke is swept along in a covert search and rescue operation that soon turns into a deadly confrontation with a North Korean sleeper cell. In the process, Burke will not only learn the secret that has drawn his sensei into such danger, but also something of the pull of the past, the power of decades old connections, and the secret that both drove Yamashita from Japan and now pulls him back into the service of the Imperial family.

              Chickie takes us thousands of miles on a hilarious quest laced with sorrow, but never dull. You will laugh and cry, but you will not be sorry that you read this rollicking story. --Malachy McCourt Soon to be a major motion picture written and directed by Peter Farrelly, who won t...wo Academy Awards for Green Book--a wildly entertaining, feel-good memoir of an Irish-American New Yorker and former U.S. marine who embarked on a courageous, hare-brained scheme to deliver beer to his pals serving Vietnam in the late 1960s. One night in 1967, twenty-six-year-old John Donohue--known as Chick--was out with friends, drinking in a New York City bar. The friends gathered there had lost loved ones in Vietnam. Now, they watched as anti-war protesters turned on the troops themselves. One neighborhood patriot came up with an inspired--some would call it insane--idea. Someone should sneak into Vietnam, track down their buddies there, give them messages of support from back home, and share a few laughs over a can of beer. It would be the Greatest Beer Run Ever. But who'd be crazy enough to do it? One man was up for the challenge--a U. S. Marine Corps veteran turned merchant mariner who wasn't about to desert his buddies on the front lines when they needed him. Chick volunteered. A day later, he was on a cargo ship headed to Vietnam, armed with Irish luck and a backpack full of alcohol. Landing in Qui Nho'n, Chick set off on an adventure that would change his life forever--an odyssey that took him through a series of hilarious escapades and harrowing close calls, including the Tet Offensive. But none of that mattered if he could bring some cheer to his pals and show them how much the folks back home appreciated them. This is the story of that epic beer run, told in Chick's own words and those of the men he visited in Vietnam.
