The Footloose American


Winner of the Maine Literary Award for Nonfiction


"A travel story that doubles as a hell of a ride through modern-day South American culture."  – Esquire

"Not only does Mr. Kevin fill us in on the careening journey that helped define Thompson as a journalist, but he also delivers an engrossing and opinionated travel guide to modern Latin America."  – The New York Times

"Kevin is a helluva good writer and, if the Gonzo King were alive, he would give The Footloose American a thumbs-up."  – Douglas Brinkley, Professor of History at Rice University and literary executor of Hunter Thompson's estate.

Local release party at Maine Coast Books!


My hometown bookstore, Maine Coast Books Shop, will help me celebrate the publication of The Footloose American here in Damariscotta on May 31 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.  I''ll be reading, signing, and mingling, and it's a chance to patronize one of New England's finest bookstores to boot. Definitely stop by if you find yourself on the Maine coast.
