“A superb display of sharp observations from a man who’s been everywhere you’d ever want to go, known everyone you’d ever want to meet, and brought it all alive in a voice you wish you had.”
Adam Hochschild, author, King Leopold’s Ghost
“One of our best non-fiction writers.”
– San Francisco Chronicle
“I am a Tom Miller fan. He has written eloquently about the Mexican-American borderlands where I was born. Here he uses his impressive skill as a journalist to provide a vivid look at his own remarkable life and creative process.
“Like a good ball player, Tom Miller always takes a mighty swing at the plate. And why shouldn’t he? He has the passion, wit, and style of a great journalist who’s thrown himself into the worlds of Cuba, Cervantes, and Wolfman Jack. As a fellow Parkinsonian, I especially appreciate his refreshing memoir.”
Martin Cruz Smith, author, Gorky Park
Tom Miller has spent years writing about the Americas as well as Africa and Spain. His many books have been uniformly praised, and as a free-lance writer for more than fifty years, he has been, as he puts it, “successfully unemployed.”
