Writer and historian William Reed, who made Puerto Vallarta his permanent home in 1972, has written several remarkable memoirs, including John Huston and Johnny Weissmuller’s, not to mention his very own, “A Mexican Odyssey,” which closely follows his life, as well as that of those around him. His latest opus, “Rocks & Shoals,” could be considered a prequel to “Odyssey,” as he looks closely at his personal experience as a naval intelligence officer working with the National Security Agency during the Cuban Missile Crisis, revealing never-before-printed details of this controversial period of American history. Available in local bookstores.
