8634: Slavin: Kurlansky, "The White Man in the Tree: And Other , Stories" (fwd)

From: pslavin@unicefusa.org

I don't remember you reviewing, Bob, Mark Kurlansky's "The White Man in the 
Tree: And Other Stories," Washington Square Press, 2000. I finally read it last 
night and there is a charming story in it, "The White Man in the Tree," based 
on the bedroom lore of Jorgen Leth, the distinguished multimedia artist and 
Denmark's Royal Consul to Southern Haiti. The story also has an interesting 
portray of Richard Morse.

There are other stories about different Caribbean nations, but the most 
important is "The White Man in the Tree." Kurlansky, a charter member of the 
Oloffson Vultures Society, is the author of the best-sellers "The Basque 
History of the World"  and "Cod : A Biography of the Fish That Changed the 
World" and is a former foreign correspondent for the Chicago Tribune.
