Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of "The Milagro Beanfield War" and "The Sterile Cuckoo" presents an impassioned memoir of his journey from child of privilege to author to activist, from self-satisfied to outward-seeking belief in "liberation ecology". Illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

The author of The Sterile Cuckoo and The Milagro Beanfield War describes his evolution from privileged post-war child to Sixties radical and novelist. Includes an essay by Scott Slovic and a bibliography of Nichols' books, stories, articles, and recordings.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

John Nichols was raised by a family as American as the Stars and Stripes. He enjoyed a top-notch private school education and at 23 wrote a best-selling novel, The Sterile Cuckoo. At that point, he considered himself “a child blessed by the culture and fated for delirious success.” However, a trip to Guatemala derailed his golden-child existence and set him on a very different path toward social and environmental activism. This book charts Nicholss rich and often tormented journey out of his sheltered middle-class life toward a belief in what he calls “liberation ecology.”
