The Lavender Blade: Delights and Desires (Paperback)
A native Californian, Angus Whyte (1937-2019) was born on an olive ranch in the Central Valley of California, a fate the writer considered a 'cosmic error' (he wished to have been born at the Palace of Versailles rather than at Sutter's Fort in Sacramento, CA).
Concurrent with his university studies at the University of California, Berkeley, the University of Washington, the Amsterdam Conservancy and Mozarteum Academy, and at Harvard University, he enjoyed a peripatetic life in France, the Netherlands, Austria, the Congo Republic, Boston, New York, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Hawai'i, San Francisco, and Palm Springs, CA.
In 2013 he published "After-Dinner Tales", his first collection of memoirs, recollections, essays, observations and vignettes drawn from his extraordinary life. This new collection further reflects and recounts many of these places through the lens of his eternal curiosity and freewheeling experiences.
