    READ ¼ My Lost Mexico My Lost MexicoOne of Michener's last works in which he chronicles his struggles with publishing Mexico He started the book in the early sixties but abandoned it due to criticism from his publisher Thirty years later the manuscript was found and prepared for release; though it was rejected by two well know publishing houses first Happens even to the bestIn the reading Michener refers to John Fulton an American who obtained the highest ratings among bull fighters He also sold drawings from his shop in Seville Spain in the 1960s A light bulb went off in my head and I raced down to the garage where I store many of my old artifacts from my two years in Spain 1968 69 Sure enough hanging in my garage was a cheaply framed print signed by Fulton Toro de la Marisma

    READ ¼ My Lost Mexico My Lost MexicoMichener is one of my favorite authors but that opimion does not come without critcism Although I enjoyed Centennilal and Chesapeake as remarkable books I find all of his writings lacking humor and romance This book tells the story of his writing the novel Mexico The uniueness to the story was that it was written following a number of successful books in the 1950's One would have thought that Michener would be secure in his skills by that time but that was not the case This novel was shelved because of criticism and the lost for decades When published it was succesful as was an ancillary portion known as The Eagle and the Raven This particular book describes the research and the story of the lost novel in detail
