Editorial Reviews

“You expect one thing, and you get an antipodean novel.  I love Thaao's stories.  His photographs alone describe his life.  It's a truthful, beautiful memoir  told by a great adventurer, a fabulous chef, and a gorgeous Greek. He tells it all.   It's a ‘you can't put it down’ biography. “
