Tart book about the foibles of tourists. I bought it at Marden's in Calais, ME with releasing in mind.

Given to my friend Covert. I hope that you enjoy the book--and thanks for coming to! When you have a moment, I'd appreciate it if you'd write a journal entry to say where this book has gone next.

This book was one of a whole bagful that Badgerjim passed on to me when we met in his home state of Maine.
I've read a good bit of it by now - the author is a very engaging writer. However, though I'm finding the book quite readable, I'm also finding it quite sad. Gresco seems to me to have gone to great lengths to seek out the seamier side of human nature wherever he went...and found it. We often do find what we look for.

An interesting exposition dealing with a segment of humanity - thanks, Badgerjim!
