Review quote

?A seductive (but never sentimental) journey into a different way of life. Readers, pack your bags.?--"Entertainment Weekly" ?Cohan describes life in Mexico as ?intimate, voluptuous, sense-driven, ? a phrase that also describes "On Mexican Time".?--"Boston Sunday Globe"?"On Mexican Time" is more than a travelogue, more than a vicarious journey for the reader. It is a gentle reminder to examine our lives and weed out the unnecessary, the chaotic, and the frivolous.?--"Tennessean"show more
