Mexican Days: Journeys Into the Heart of Mexico

Tony Cohan

Broadway,  April 2006

The author of On Mexican Time continues his vibrant encounter with the country by venturing deep into ancient and contemporary Mexico.

On Mexican Time, Tony Cohan's chronicle of discovering a new life in the small Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende, has captivated readers and become a travel category bestseller, with sales of over 75,000 copies. Now Cohan undertakes a richer, wider exploration of the country he has settled in: the misty mountains and coastal Caribbean towns of Veracruz; the ruins and resorts of Yucatan; the stirring indigenous world of Chiapas; the markets and galleries of Oaxaca; the throbbing underbelly of Mexico City; the remote Sierra Gordas; the haunted city of Guanajuato; and the evocative Mayan ruins of Palenque. Written with the intimate, sensuous insight that earned On Mexican Time wide acclaim, Mexican Days is an immensely pleasurable and entertaining travel narrative by one of the most vivid, compelling travel voices to emerge in recent years.

"Cohan describes life in Mexico as 'intimate, voluptuous, sense driven,' a phrase that also describes On Mexican Time."
--Boston Globe

"Not just a story of one expatriate's attractive lifestyle. Cohan picks up -- and passes on -- a lot of Mexican history and culture. His prose is appealing. Chapters read like carefully crafted short stories."
--Washington Post

"Seductive . . . an enticing and intoxicating vision of Mexico."
--Denver Post on On Mexican Time
