On Mexican time :a new life in San Miguel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"For Tony Cohan, Mexico is a place where the human spirit breathes freely in prolific forms — some sad and funny, some bizarre and touching, all sharply rendered by his alert eye and graceful prose. What a pleasure it is to be guided through this good story of a couple making a life there." Michael Ryan, author of Secret Life

Review:

"A brief escape from the hectic life of Los Angeles to a small Mexican town slowly and inexorably changes novelist Cohan and his artist wife. Cohan is poetic in his descriptions of the vibrancy of life, the serenity of the pace of activity, the simplicity of priorities, and the attentiveness of human relationships in Mexico. Humorous and enviable for the adventure and sheer joy of adopting a new language, culture, and lifestyle." Booklist

Review:

"With breathtaking skill Tony Cohan evokes Mexico's mystical depths and America's thirst for soul. He blurs the line in the sand we call 'the border,' revealing the richness of life we miss by being distant neighbors." Soledad Santiago, author of Streets of Fire

Review:

"Like Mexico itself, On Mexican Time is a spectacle of sights, scents, and sounds. Shaped by Cohan's imaginative and vivid prose, colors, aromas, and sounds leap, waft, and resonate from the page." Sandra Benitez, author of A Place Where the Sea Remembers and Bitter Grounds

Synopsis:

Filled with colorful characters and the daily drama of Mexican life, "On Mexican Time" is a vivid portrait of San Miguel as well as an irresistible journey of discovery and transformation.
