YAY!! C. Alexander London's Got A Book Birthday Today!!
A while back, the Don and I were captivated by C. Alexander London's We Are Not Eaten By Yaks. (See my interview with the author HERE.)
Now, to paraphrase the Goodreads blurb, siblings Oliver and Celia Navel are on another adventure, We Dine With Cannibals, traveling from the ruins of ancient temples to the shadowy forests of the Amazon. They'll need all their reality TV survival skills when they ride a llama, race the rapids, and even fly an airplane! If that's not enough excitement for you (it is decidedly too much excitement for Oliver and Celia), they'll be forced to learn the proper etiquette for a cannibal feast and confront the strangest and most brutal rite of passage ever devised by human imagination: dodgeball.
To celebrate his book birthday, C. Alexander London is teaming up with SMITH Magazine’s Six-Word Memoir Project and wants to know about your most accidental adventure. (Further details HERE) He'll be selecting a random mini-memoirist to win a Kindle!! Don Vito's 6-worder: Purveyor of fine Italian concrete galoshes. Oy Vey!
