July 2009 Indie Next List
“Who knew a history book could be so funny? Romp along with the blustery premier of the USSR in 1959, with all his wacky pronouncements, and learn (or remember) a little something about the coldest days of the cold war. This is a fun book for everyone.”
— Pete Mulvihill, Green Apple Books, San Francisco, CA
Khrushchev's 1959 trip across America was one of the strangest exercises in international diplomacy ever conducted, a surreal extravaganza, in which he befriended and offended a cast of characters including Nelson Rockefeller and Marilyn Monroe. K Blows Top is a work of history that reads like a Vonnegut novel.
