Succulent, Rollicking, Funny, Frenzied: the Reviews Are In!

Breakfast for Alligators

Stories from Guyana, Uruguay, Nicaragua, Panama, Canada, Trinidad & Tobago, and more countries in the Americas.

Breakfast for Alligators was released only five months ago, and I feel blessed that the Kindle version has reached #1 in Amazon’s Central America category twice. Meanwhile, the book has received a handsome collection of reviews. Here are a few excerpts:

“Succulent travel writing.”
  —Publishers Weekly

“An anthology of rollicking, sometimes baffling adventures (and plenty of misadventures)….A bunch of great stories.”
  —Spud Hilton, The San Francisco Chronicle

“Gritty, funny, street-savvy, boisterous, and informative.”
  —William Caverlee, Perceptive Travel

“Read Breakfast for Alligators: Quests, Showdowns and Revelations in the Americas for the loving attention to detail, the frenzied trips through muddy fields, in backs of SWAT vans, in boats, even submarines. Read it for the food, familiar and weird, but most of all, read it for the journey that one man takes, and his observations of the mundane in a world that is familiar, and yet unknown.”
  —Madhushree Ghosh, Panorama: The Journal of Intelligent Travel

For those in the New York City area, I will be signing copies of Breakfast for Alligators at the Astoria Market’s final Holiday Event this Sunday, December 18, 2016 from 12 noon to 6 pm in Astoria, Queens at the Bohemian Hall. More information on the event can be found here.
