Kinky Gazpacho

The Washington Post declares Kinky Gazpacho one of the Best Books of 2008!

From Publisher’s Weekly (Starred review!)“With flawless agility, Tharps (coauthor of Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America ) juggles a coming-of-age story, a portrait of the writer as a young woman, a travel book and a detective story along with a memoir about learning to love oneself and one’s world. .”

From Essence Magazine “Tharps takes us on a bumpy intercontinental ride through ignorance and enlightenment.”

From Bookpage “…told with witty sarcasm akin to that of Gish Jen’s narrator in Mona in the Promised Land.”

Kinky Gazpacho: Life, Love & Spain is a memoir, a travel essay and a love story. It is the sometimes humorous and always heartfelt story of my racial coming of age. Traveling from my hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to the land of my future in-laws in the south of Spain, I kept searching for the real me. The journey was long but the lessons learned were worth every mile!

Buy the book: From Amazon, at Powell’s or at Hue-Man Bookstore.
