More About the Author

Twenty years ago by a book peddler's stall in a bittersweet Mexican night, Adam Lifshey stumbled upon the inspiration for his novel, As Green as Paradise. Between then and now, he dreamed beneath the sandstone of Salamanca, covered a hostage crisis in Lima for a Japanese newspaper, busked with his guitar on the streets of Scandinavia (the "Iceman Strummeth" tour), studied a Mayan language in Guatemala, released the original folk album "Where the Quetzal Flies" in Berkeley, kept on keeping on in the Philippines, wrote the only book ever on Asian and African literature in Spanish, listened again and again to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen and grinned again and again at Ferris Bueller's Day Off. His favorite book is Mason & Dixon.
