The story of my search for Kevin Andrews the author of The Flight of Ikaros is now available on amazon.com and seems to be selling well. The first review is as follows
An honest work, March 29, 2010
This is a well-researched, original study of the life of Kevin Andrews, the second son born to Yvette Borup Andrews. Kevin's true father later came into question because Yvette gave birth while openly estranged from, but still married to, Roy Chapman Andrews during the era of the Central Asiatic Expeditions to China and Inner and Outer Mongolia from 1921 to 1930. The marriage eventually failed and Roy eventually rejected Kevin.
Kevin Andrew's life was a series of fascinating adventures, occasional successes and constant torment which Jinkinson narrates with great skill, compassion and insight. His complicated relationships with Yvette and Roy, as well as his own family and even himself, are well-studied. As to all, the book discloses bits of information not previously known.
Regardless of his difficulties with personal relationships, Kevin's adaptation of Greece and Greek culture seems to have been the most genuine and rewarding aspect of his life. In this regard, Jinkinson has followed in Andrews' footsteps and it is how and why Jinkinson came to understand him.
