Twemlow, the Wilderness Years
, by Dale Shale. Haricot Books, NJ.
ISBN 223-1359-108

Much has been written about folk dancing in Armenia, but not many people know the true story behind Twemlow’s daring escape from Monterey, disguised as a Peruvian muleteer, in the bitter winter of 1964.

Now, for the first time, the true story can be told — a story of mayhem, madness, murder, masturbation, Martians, and marzipan.

After eight years of exhaustive research across twelve continents, journalist Dale Shale (Was Hitler a Transvestite? The Zildfeigstrasse Affair) brings you the incredible story of Twemlow, arch-villain and dashing desperado of the Dardenelles, who eluded law enforcement agencies around the world for over a decade, following the most outrageous jailbreak in US history.

Using never-before-seen archive material (including Twemlow’s own copy of The Wind in the Willows), Shale pieces together one of the 20th century’s most enduring mysteries.
