A list of my all-time favorite book and authors during the writing of my first novel, “Rain Forest Jim” — A dark comedy about the take down of a major drug cartel by an unlikely cast of characters: A down-on-his-luck Navajo, the cartel’s own stoned pilots, a gaggle of hookers, an unlucky goose. . . and the elusive Rain Forest Jim.
