Mystery Police Procedural

Seldom Disappointed is an affectionate and unvarnished recollection of the life on one of America's best-loved writers. Beginning with his upbringing in Depression-era Oklahoma, it spans his tour of duty in France during World War II, his newspaper career, and his now legendary years as an author. Tony also talks about the poverty of his early life, and his adoption, with wife Marie, of several children.

Using the gifts of a talented novelist and reporter, Hillerman draws a brilliant portrait not just of his life, but of the world around him. Relating his life story with generous intelligence, gritty honesty, and above all, a lack of sentimentality, he has written about an era rich in context and anecdote.
