About the Book:

George was a liberal long before the word became fashionable and long after it fell into disrepute. In this anthology of his writing, he reflects on growing up as the eldest son of the eminent Professor Armando Menezes, a life spent between Goa and Bombay, his closest relationships, youthful experimentation with marijuana, joining the BJP, and being an outspoken Lay conscience of the Catholic Church. With exclusive access to photographs, private letters and unpublished family memoirs, we encounter a family history of nationalism and activism In a writing career which spans over sixty years as a regular columnist for the Times of India, Midday, Indian Express, Debonair and Goa Today, and as a recipient of a lifetime achievement award for journalism, George is a keen chronicler of our times; incisive and uncannily prescient His writing will continue to speak to us intimately for a long time to come. He has that indefinable thing called style, his articles have made me weep, laugh and wonder at human nature. – Veteran journalist M V Kamath. Never far from the light touch, the serious chord, the description that lingers, lies a set of liberal beliefs that will not be denied. He stands at the forefront of Indian humorists, virtually alone. – Advertising guru Frank Simoes
