Former New York Times reporter Daniel Simpson at Couth Buzzard Books tonight

by | Sep 25, 2012

Former New York Times reporter Daniel Simpson will discuss his new book, “A Rough Guide to the Dark Side: Or Why I Quit My Job at the New York Times, To Get Myself Mixed Up With Balkan Gangsters!” from 7-9 tonight at Couth Buzzard Books Espresso Buono Café, 8310 Greenwood Ave. N.

Ex-NY Times Correspondent Daniel Simpson threw away a career as a foreign correspondent, aghast at his paper’s pro-war propaganda. Instead, he tried to start a Summer of Love. Renamed Raoul Djukanovic, he had visions of changing the Balkans with a music festival. A Rough Guide to the Dark Side relates how that dream went spectacularly wrong, leaving him fried on drugs in a hunt for the meaning of life.
