English literature has been deluged by memoirs, commentaries and travel logs depicting the fascinating adventures of hearty souls and brilliant intellectuals. In contrast, Throw Me Under the Bus...Please, is a cynical yet humorous account of a bus tour through Mexico in the company of my doting wife, two children and demanding parents. The book is neither a traditional event-oriented memoir or detail-laden synopsis of a foreign land. Rather, it reflects my sardonic but insightful reflections as I become an unwitting captive aboard a meticulously prompt tour bus meandering through the architectural wonders of pre-Colombian Mexico. I am a quirky "everyman," guided by a thoughtful wife, humbled by my rapidly maturing pre-teen children and plagued by my cajoling parents. Although rife with facts and tales concerning Meso-American culture and architecture, the details serve primarily as a backdrop for my inner stream of sarcastic musings. Think Virginia Woolf meets Bob Hope, on the road without Bing Crosby for support.


The author was born in New York in 1962 and was raised in the nearby environs of Long Island's north shore. He is a product of the local public schools, with a typical suburban upbringing revolving around organized and spontaneous athletics, schoolwork and beating up his younger brother. He earned a BA degree at Wesleyan University, majoring in biochemistry, and received his MD from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Currently, the author is a practicing radiologist at the Veterans Affairs of New Jersey Health Care System and Associate Professor of Clinical Radiology at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Although he has written many scholarly articles for peer reviewed journals, his more creative side yearns for a less encumbered forum of its own, away from the rigid protocols of scientific prose. Thus was born this book and hopefully many others to follow.
