From the Back Cover:
"CAPTIVATING . . . HIGHLY REVEALING."
--The New York Times

"MICHENER IS EVERYTHING HE SAYS, AND MORE. . . . The best parts of this engaging and readable work concern his World War II experiences in the South Pacific, where he met a woman actually named Bloody Mary (long before the drink was invented) and where he stumbled on a miserable little Melanesian village whose name so charmed him that he wrote it down: Bali-H'ai. The story of how his often hilarious adventures turned into a book and then a Broadway musical so successful that after opening night he couldn't afford to buy a ticket is really the heart of his autobiography."
--The Washington Post Book World

"A SWEEPINGLY INTERESTING LIFE . . . Rivals any fiction for tales of geographic or mental adventure. . . . Whether he's having an epiphany over a campout in New Guinea with head-hunting cannibals or getting politically charged by the melodrama of great opera, James A. Michener's world is a place and a time worth reading about."
--The Christian Science Monitor

"TOUCHING AND REVEALING."
--San Francisco Chronicle
From the Inside Flap:
JAMES MICHENER was "a Renaissance man, adventurous, inquisitive, energetic, unpretentious and unassuming, with an encyclopedic mind and a generous heart."* Now, one of America's most beloved novelists gives us the story of his own remarkable life . . . .
(*The New York Times Book Review)
