Editorial Reviews

Review

“Chronicling his gastronomic and geographic adventures, DuFord's playful and pop-culture peppered prose (describing Nicaragua's Caballito as "the country's White Castle of hooch") makes for 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 

“Breakfast for Alligators is an eye-opener for both the untraveled and the well-traveled alike because this is no shiny tourism guide, this is down-home firsthand experience, and all the more charming for it.”
--Glenn Dallas, San Francisco Book Review

“DuFord has created a series of magical and often humorous travel stories in which no local foods, material realities, or local rituals are off-limits. Breakfast for Alligators is a joy to read.”
--Gregory Hubbs, editor of Transitions Abroad

“Intrepid and chronically curious, Darrin DuFord charges into the more obscure corners of Latin America and brings back revealing, sometimes bizarre details. Warning: may inspire impulse plane-ticket purchases.”
--Zora O’Neill, author of All Strangers Are Kin: Adventures in Arabic and the Arab World

“DuFord captures the best of travel writing—by turn informative and entertaining, often hilarious, sometimes moving... He takes us on one wild ride after another.”
--Tony Perrottet, author of Napoleon’s Privates: 2,500 Years of History Unzipped

“In a world full of overwrought and contrived travel stories, Darrin DuFord’s collection, Breakfast for Alligators, is a breath of fresh air: open, honest, and in love with the world (and its many flavors) in a way that makes you yearn to go along with DuFord as he follows his curiosity to the far corners of the Americas.”
--Frank Bures, author of The Geography of Madness: Penis Thieves, Voodoo Death, and the Search for the Meaning of the World’s Strangest Syndromes

“Darrin DuFord’s thoughtful, reflective prose offers a short episodic-type glimpse of the moments in question—competing wine festivals that weren’t all that competitive in Chile, a slice of the drumming life in Montevideo, Uruguay....There’s plenty to entertain.”
--Chris Backe, One Weird Globe

“Darrin DuFord’s latest magnum opus vividly takes us from the steamy New Orleans suburbs to the jungles of Guyana to the coffee-covered hills of Nicaragua and beyond. This is more than breakfast: it’s a readable, enjoyable feast, best consumed any time of day or night.”
--David Farley, author of An Irreverent Curiosity
