Secrets of San Miguel

Why is San Miguel de Allende known as one of the most fascinating towns in the world? In a high-powered collection of tales spanning more than forty years, the outrageous literary raconteur Alice Denham answers that question. With a pen already well-sharpened by her celebrated “tell-all” memoir Sleeping With Bad Boys, Denham tells yet more, and more, and more … … about hippies forcibly shorn of their manes, womanizing drug dealers, police torture, gorgeous bullfighters, martyred laborers, good-hearted murderers, black-hearted saints, international sex and romance both gay and straight—with rape, incest, brutality, infidelity, betrayal, kindness, loyalty, generosity, heroism, family love, and abiding friendship in the mix. You may have read books about Mexico, and even about San Miguel, but you’ve never read one like this. Secrets of San Miguel opens a Pandora’s box of wild, wicked, scandalous, funny, and heartbreaking tales about a Mexican town long known both for its beauty and the day-to-day misadventures of its artists, writers, expatriates, and locals—by an author who was there for it all.
