The Tiki revival seems to get a second boost nowadays thru the backdoor of the cocktail, largely thanks to the work of Jeff Berry, who landed several NY Times articles since Sippin' Safari was published. My "Tiki Modern" in turn has had no significant American reviews or notices worth mentioning (..yet 23 write ups throughout Europe!). I appears that a Zombie is much easier digested by the journalists then the bulky, rough esthetic of WITCO !
Zombie : "Tastes good!" :: Witco : "Bad taste!"
Just kidding. I love all three of your books, some parts ("Sexy Tiki") more than others (the voluminous ode to clunky, chunky Witco).
