"Dapper man Jürgen Schadeberg, originally from Germany, is one of the few masters in journalism who welcomed me and kicked my ass to do better when I arrived in Sin City. This memoir is a broadcast of his journey South and through continental Europe - it is a reflection of Schadeberg's striking, interventionist, visual journalism: considerate, questioning, empathetic and ultimately beautifying." Bongani Madondo, author of "Sigh, the Beloved Country"
