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.

Reading and panel: The Montana Festival of the Book

Super looking forward to reading at Shakespeare & Co. on Friday, October 10, during the Montana Festival of the Book. I'm joining Bryce Andrews and Molly Caro May for a nonfiction triple-threat.

The next morning, on Saturday, October 11, I'll be on a panel about "Searching for the Story" in nonfiction with two immensely talented writers: Peter Stark and Murray Carpenter. Drop by if you're in western Montana.
