Editorial Reviews

Review

"Totten is part Paul Theroux with a dose of Hunter S. Thompson. He all but throws himself into the creepy post-Soviet expanses and the mountainous nooks and crannies of the Balkans, the Caucasus and the Middle East, with glimpses of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. But...the stuff of Where the West Ends is more interesting and strange...It's also as good as 'travel writing' gets." Terry Glavin, Ottawa Citizen

About the Author

Michael J. Totten is an award-winning journalist and prize-winning author whose very first book, The Road to Fatima Gate, won the Washington Institute Book Prize. His novel, Resurrection, has been optioned for film.

He has taken road trips to war zones, sneaked into police states underfalse pretenses, dodged incoming rocket and mortar fire, stayed in someof the worst hotels ever built anywhere, slipped past the hostile sideof a front line, been accused of being a spy, received death threatsfrom terrorists, and been mugged by Egyptian police officers. When he's not doing orwriting about these things, he writes novels.

His work has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and The New Republic among numerous other publications, and he's a contributing editor at World Affairs and City Journal. He has reported widely from the Middle East, the former Soviet Union,Latin America, and the Balkans. A former resident of Beirut, he lives in Oregon with his wife and two cats.
