Simon Winchester is the acclaimed author most recently of The Men Who United the States as well as Atlantic, The Professor and the Madman, The Man Who Loved China, A Crack in the Edge of the World, and Krakatoa, all of which were New York Times bestsellers In 2006 Mr Winchester was made an officer of the Order of the British Empire OBE by Her Majesty the Queen He resides in western Massachusetts.Starred Review Award winning travel writer Hoffmans The Lunatic Express, 2010 penchant for extremes fueled his demanding quest for the truth about Michael Rockefellers disappearance in New Guinea in 1961 Freshly graduated from Harvard and eager to emulate his art collector father, Nelson Rockefeller, then governor of New York, Michael became enthralled with the Asmats extraordinary wood carvings and was dashing from village to village, buying as many pieces as he could find, when his boat capsized in rough seas Death by drowning was the official finding, but rumors of a far horrific fate persisted After arduous sojourns among the enigmatic Asmat, Hoffman came to understand how their ancient cosmology was enacted through reciprocal violence, headhunting, and cannibalism He also realized just how risky Rockefellers buying spree was, given the bloody conflicts raging between the Asmat and the Dutch colonial authorities, and how little the novice collector knew about the spiritual significance of the art he was acquiring, including monumental works on display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art By dint of grueling fieldwork, startling archival discoveries, revelatory visits with a Dutch missionary relieved to break his 50 year silence, profound insights, and muscular writing, Hoffman tells the unforgettable story of a soothing and politically expedient cover up and a brutal and tragic collision of cultures Donna Seaman Savage Harvest Rotten Tomatoes In the small town of Dittmer, MO, a group friends goes to lakeside home owned by Gary, uncle one
