About the Book

Three years ago, when I put a collection of newspaper articles I had written into a book called 87 and Still Wandering About, the thought that I would add a sequel when I hit 90 never entered my mind. But longevity, vanity, and the compulsion to scribble have won out. These pieces, most of which appeared in the Los Angeles Times online or its baby, La Canada's Vally Sun, were meant to be read separately, like morsels, with time in between to turn to other things. I hope that in bringing them together like this, they do not seem to you to be too repetitive, dated, or indigestible. In fact, I’m even hoping you’ll enjoy a few of them.

About the Author

Reg Green is the father of seven-year old Nicholas Green, who was shot in a botched carjacking in Italy while on a family vacation in 1994 and whose organs were donated to seven very sick Italians, four of them teenagers. Since then he has devoted his life to promoting organ donation. Formerly the chief business writer of the Daily Telegraph in London and a commentator for the BBC before moving to the United States, he has written articles or been interviewed by newspapers, magazines and on television on six continents. He has written two books about organ transplantation, "The Nicholas Effect" and "The Gift that Heals," that have become classics in their field and a book of musings, like this one, called "87 And Still Wandering About." All three were published by Authorhouse.
