From fantastical beginnings - his mother went into labour while gambling at a French casino - to escaping Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy and ultimately conquering New York City, John Gruen's life has been anything but ordinary. As a boy unable to speak a single word of English, Gruen was determined to make it in America. Anxious to learn about his adopted country, Gruen ventured to the midwest to attend Iowa University, emerging five years later as a fully Americanised graduate student on his way to a PhD. Here is a subtly revealing self-portrait of a truly remarkable man.
