Upriver is now out in a German edition published by Konstanz University Press.
Information on Stromaufwärts: Das bewegte Leben eines Amazonasvolks, translated by Laura Su Bischoff.
20 December 2015. A review of the German edition appeared in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung on 18 December. (PDF copy here: faz_review_reduced.) My German-speaking friends tell me that it’s a favorable review. It contains a factual error, however: Evaristo Nugkuag does not serve as a member of the Peruvian parliament; it’s Eduardo Nayap as stated in the book.
I was interviewed about Upriver by Mary-Charlotte Domandi, whose regionally famous talk show is recorded daily from Mary-Charlotte’s corner table at the Santa Fe Baking Company. The interview precedes my lecture for the Southwest Seminars on February 9 at the Hotel Santa Fe.
