A Voluntary Crucifixion

A Voluntary Crucifixion

By David MacKinnon

A Voluntary Crucifixion traces the story of 20th century Canada through the MacKinnon clan and David J MacKinnon?s life. Disillusioned with the slow death of the soul promised by life at a major Montreal law firm, MacKinnon ripped himself untimely from the profession, making a personal vow to discover society "from the bottom up". A Voluntary Crucifixion recounts the tale of MacKinnon?s adventures and misadventures from post-Tiananmen Hong Kong to various ports of call in the Indian Ocean, offering MacKinnon?s views on everything from censorship to indigenous issues, all of which reflect his life ethos that the key to life is to refuse to adapt, and to fight tooth-and-nail for every square inch of your freedom before others wrench it from you.

"...staggering, destructive, illuminating and exhilarating. A Voluntary Crucifixion is worth finding, buying, reading and savouring. MacKinnon is an underappreciated gem who, in a perfect world, would be a household name, and for more than one reason. Make him one in yours."-- Joe Hartlaub, Senior Reviewer, New York?s Book Reporter.
