About the Author

James O. Goldsborough, raised in Los Angeles, is an award-winning writer with a 40-year career in journalism. Goldsborough spent 15 years in Europe as a foreign correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune, International Herald Tribune, Newsweek Magazine and the Toronto Star. He has written numerous articles for the New York Times Magazine, Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy. His first book, "Rebel Europe," published by Macmillan, was hailed by the Los Angeles Times reviewer, "the most important book I have read in years." He next published The Misfortunes of Wealth a family memoir dealing with the disadvantages of inherited money. His earlier well-received historical novels are The Paris Herald (2014) and Waiting for Uncle John (2018), both published by Prospecta Press and Blood and Oranges (2021) published by City Point Press.


A really good book. Goldsborough takes on important issues in this compelling and artful novel, and he does it with grace and a salutary dose of anger. Bravo.--Beth Gutcheon, bestselling author of eleven novels, including More Than You Know, Still Missing, and Leeway Cottage
Goldsborough brilliantly and lucidly captures the Zeitgeist of our troubled times, how the depravity of MAGA is poisoning not only public discourse but insidiously seeping into and wrecking old friendships and once solid families. With his polished pen, Goldsborough contrasts today's horrors with happier times: the dreamy Santa Monica of earlier times and the glories and loves of his days in Paris as a newspaper reporter. Goldsborough writes with an honesty and passion that will stir your soul and rekindle your belief that a better world is still within our grasp. --RICHARD FEINBERG, former White House and State Department official, professor emeritus at UCSD, book reviewer for Foreign Affairs
