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.

Labor Day evening — great reading in Portland, Maine!

Super pleased to read the evening of September 1 at the Word Portland series. Some of my favorites have read here in the past, and it's a privilege to be included. Come for a cocktail at the end of your long weekend. LFK in Longfellow Square, 9 p.m.
