These tales of Savageâs journey from poor immigrantâs son in New York City to media star are deeply personal and revealing: he writes of being so poor as a child that he had to wear a dead manâs pants; of the various trials that beset his parents and âsilent brother,â Jerome, who was sent to an institution; of his botanical expeditions to Fiji in the 1970âs; and, most of all, of his family, his sustaining force throughout. âA marvelous storyteller.â âÂ THE NEW YORKER âVivid storytelling.âÂ Â Â Â âÂ WASHINGTON TIMES Â Review âVivid storytelling. ...
