From The New York Times, Sunday, October 25, 1998"Tommy the Turk was late, and the organizers of the monthlynonfiction reading at the KGB Bar on East Fourth Street were worried. Theformer Communist meeting hall, with its dusty Soviet-era propaganda, waspacked with academics, journalists, graduate students, diplomats andothers.Tommy the Turk, a.k.a, Thomas Goltz is the author of"Azerbaijan Diary"...Mr. Goltz's account of six years as afreelance journalist in a volatile region where oil men, spies, Islamicmilitants, mercenaries and corrupt politicians jockey for power reads likea combination of John le Carre and Hunter S. Thompson...Mr. Goltz read anexcerpt from his book in which, after dodging bullets in a war zone, he isshunned by an editor he is trying to reach by phone.At a party later thatnight, he is distraught.A former psychologist to the cosmonauts observeshim swigging from a bottle of whisky and tells him there is only one curefor depression: Danger.It is classic Goltz, a liquor-fueled mix of depairand bravado."- Anthony Lappe, The New York Times, Sunday, October25, 1998
