James A. Michener was "a Renaissance man, adventurous, inquisitive, energetic, unpretentious and unassuming, with an encyclopedic mind and a generous heart" ("The New York Times Book Review"). Now, to commemorate the 100th anniversary of this literary legend's birth, here is the story of his remarkable life, told by the man himself.
In this exceptional memoir, James Michener describes the people, events, and ideas that have shaped his life. Moving backward and forward across time, he writes about the many strands of his experience: his passion for travel; his lifelong infatuation with literature, music, and painting; his liberal credo and his adventures in politics; and the hard work, headaches, and rewards of the writing life. Here at last is the real James Michener, plainspoken, wise, and enormously sympathetic, a man who can truly say, "The world is my home."
"A sweepingly interesting life . . . Whether he's having an epiphany over a campout in New Guinea with head-hunting cannibals or getting politically charged by the melodrama of great opera, James A. Michener's world is a place and a time worth reading about."
-"The Christian Science Monitor"
"There are splendid yarns about his wartime doings in the South Pacific. There are hilarious cautionary tales about his service on government commissions. There are wonderful inside stories from the publishing business. And always there is Michener himself-analyzing his own character, assessing himself as a writer, chronicling his intellectual life, giving advice to young writers."
-"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
"Michener's own life makes one of his most engaging tales-a classic American success story."
