Ray Reece was born in Colorado and raised in Texas. He has worked as a cowboy, a factory hand, a college teacher, a journalist and a full-time activist in the U.S. civil rights, anti-war and deep ecology movements. Currently a columnist for The Budapest Sun, he is the author of two previous novels, Fabian’s Dream and Crossfire, and a non-fiction work, The Sun Betrayed: A Report on the Corporate Seizure of U.S. Solar Energy Development. Pursuant to his effort to promote his books and generate resistance to the corporate oligarchs destroying the planet, he divides his time between Italy, Hungary and the United States.
“A sprawling Texas brawl of a novel, richly detailed, funny and provocative. Celebrates the rebel life—in the spirit of Burroughs and Kerouac—while bluntly confronting the Anglo-Hispanic cultural divide in America today. Sure to be rated R for steamy love scenes, violence and pot. But don't wait for the movie.”
Author of Conquest of Paradise: Christopher Columbus and the Columbian Legacy, Human Scale, and ten other books
"This is a woman's book as much as a man's. Touching and powerful."
