About the Author:

Michael LaRocca was included in the 1982 Who's Who in American Writing before vanishing from the literary scene for 20 years. This is his seventh published novel, and he swears it feels more like his final novel than any of his other final novels. Michael lived in China for six years, Thailand for five years, and Vietnam for one year. He's a reading junkie, a bicycle nut, an avid hiker, and an NFL addict. His wife is from Australia and their 14-year-old world-travelling Calico cat is from Hong Kong. He says, "I bring home the best souvenirs." Michael has been a medical lecturer, an English teacher, a technical editor, a purchasing manager, a computer programmer, a repo man, an unarmed security guard with a bad attitude, a dishwasher, a busboy, a military electronics specialist, a house cleaner, a gas pumper, a car washer, and a pet sitter. He's also been paid to masturbate hogs, but he made sure nobody took photos. He can be reached at MichaelEdits.com or MichaelWrites.com.

Review:

Funny, poignant, riveting, and heartbreaking. -- Daisy Dexter Dobbs, author of SHIPPING SHARON

The story was so good that I had to call my parents after. -- Ian Johnson, Wall Street Journal
