William Himango is a retired neurosurgeon who has traveled extensively. His love for the rain forest helped set the scene for this novel. He also believes there is more truth in fiction than in nonfiction.
Himango’s travels have allowed him to meet people of many lands. He saw them as different; he was different. He has seen the good and the bad. And with that, it became clear to him that each of us wears the shroud of bias and prejudice. Hence, the characters of this story. None are perfect. They are all of us.
Advance Praise for Provenance:
“William Himango is a writer’s writer reminiscent of William Styron. Himango chooses each and every word with the precision of a neurosurgeon—his profession and lifelong vocation. With Provenance, he has sculpted a wonderful novel that takes us on an adventure from Minnesota to Boston to the steamy and dangerous Amazon River in Brazil. Come along for the journey—and travel lightly.”
