"The Wine Thief is an exuberant excursion through the lore and the history of wine in the valleys of Central California...all the intrigue, all the in-fighting and all the romance of families and enemies burn across the pages. The characters sizzle. Ed Dean promises to be an author of note on the American scene for many years." - Rita Cobain Brown, Editor "This book comes at a crucial time in American society. It conveys the true history of the quiet generations of American Muslims that have been here for over a hundred years." Nancy M.
