Bio of Richard Zacks

I was born in Savannah, Georgia in 1955, right out of "Driving Miss Daisy". I went to an all-boys highschool which might explain my exaggerated interest in reading about sex. I studied Arabic in Cairo, Italian in Perugia, French in the vineyards of Champagne region. I spent almost two years researching this book; I ransacked the Private Case at the British Library, toured L'Enfer at the Bibliotheque Nationale; I spent a week at the Kinsey Institute in Bloomington, Indiana asking for the illustrated edition of everything. I had a syndicated column and (was) graduated from Columbia Journalism School. But you don't want to hear about me. I think you'd rather see if there are any pictures you missed. Well, here's a bonus, for listening to me talk about myself.
