Norman Lewis was the best non-famous writer of his generation. He was non-famous because critics judged his works of travel & non-fiction as lower than the yardstick of artistic genius represented by the novel. He spied for the British government, raced Bugattis & lived in Ibiza. This is the story of a suburban fugitive & adventurer.

A well-written, lively biography of an extraordinary writer who is, hands-down, my favorite. Mr. Evans began writing it before Lewis died, & then Norman's 3rd wife gave him unrestricted access to his notebooks, diaries, & letters. After reading 10+ of Lewis' books, I was very curious to learn how he came to be such an intrepid traveler and amazing writer. This book satisfied that curiosity and then some; many wonderful pictures are included. I should donate it to the Austin Library (if I can part with it).
