More About the Author

Gil Gevins was born and raised in New York, where he single-handedly founded his school's first junior class newspaper. The paper was banned by school authorities after one issue.
Following his escape from high school, he attended Cornell University, where he received a degree in Wildlife Biology.
After working for several years in a fire tower, he began his literary career as the feature writer for the Berkeley Barb, one of America's premier "underground" newspapers. A master of irony even at the tender age of twenty-three, Mr. Gevins was one of the pioneers in the field of "personal journalism", inserting himself as the protagonist into his off-beat columns and articles.
In l983 he moved to Puerto Vallarta Mexico, where he has worked and resided until this day. Mr. Gevins has written over two hundred satirical newspaper columns (which read more like short stories) and four books. The first three books were collections of true stories about his often surreal and always hilarious experiences as an American expat living and working in Mexico.
The titles, in order, are: PUERTO VALLARTA ON 49 BRAIN CELLS A DAY; REFRIED BRAINS; and PUERTO VALLARTA ON A DONKEY A DAY.
His most recent work, a novel, is entitled SLIME AND PUNISHMENT. It is the story of a prestigious middle-aged knee surgeon who goes way off the reservation in his pursuit of extra-marital bliss, with both tragic and comic results.
Mr. Gevins continues to reside in the land of mescal and mariachis, slipping and sliding in and out of one misadventure after another.
