Author: Jenny Rees
Goronwy Rees (1909-1979) was one of the most gifted and promising figures in the constellation of British poets, journalists, and intellectuals of the 1930s that included Louis MacNeice, W. H., Auden, C. Day Lewis, Isaiah Berlin, and Anthony Blunt. Like many liberals of his generation, he was shocked by the effects of the Depression and correspondingly sympathetic to the Communist regime in Russia. Guy Burgess, of the Cambridge spies--Burgess, Maclean, Philby, and Blunt, admitted his espionage to Rees. His association with Burgess was to blight the rest of Rees's life. When Burgess defected in 1951, and Rees denounced him to MI5, Rees was viewed more as a spy out to save his own skin than as an honorable citizen. His anonymous, sensationalist articles in The People, denouncing Burgess's political activities and all but naming names, condemned him with the British intellectual community--not for his politics but for his betrayal of a friend. Colleagues and acquaintances accused him of trying to initiate a McCarthyite witch-hunt. He lost his job. His academic career was ruined. In Looking for Mr. Nobody, Jenny Rees deals with many of the old charges made against her father in her search for the answer to her own question, "Was he, too, a spy?" Had he joined up with Burgess and Blunt and passed secrets to the Soviet Union? Her quest for the truth reveals a fascinating portrait of a brilliant but flawed man of letters, handsome and seductively charming, caught up in the radical, political commitments of the 1930s, Communist Party membership, and his tortured relationship with the notorious Cambridge spies.

Born in rural Wisconsin on a dairy farm, Michael Rasmussen learned the importance of working hard at an early age. He was one of twelve children and was responsible for chores that contributed to the family's livelihood. Living in a small town didn't stop Michael from dreaming of a life on the road, traveling and seeing all the wonders of the world. When Michael dreamed of seeing the world, he hadn't envisioned seeing it while fighting in a war. However, in 1968, he enlisted in the army during the Vietnam War. Michael found himself a driver in convoys, stationed in Long Binh, Vietnam. Instead of sights full of wonder, Michael, or 'Raz' as his army buddies knew him, saw destruction in his three tours served. Michael watched countless friends killed in convoy attacks and came very near death himself. Once he returned from the war, Michael was not the same. His home did not feel like home anymore, and it certainly wasn't a welcome homecoming. Fueled by his wanderlust, Michael became a trucker. He fell in love with the business, but the life of a trucker didn't always cater to families especially when dealing with demons of the past. After three broken marriages, Michael married the love of his life, Mary Ellen. Together, they faced one of the most difficult obstacles of Michael's life: multiple myeloma, an incurable bone marrow cancer. Thirty years after leaving Vietnam, Michael faced the consequences of Agent Orange. Michael's story is one of strength, a story of encouragement to beat seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Discover that Michael isn't just a Mr. Nobody, and learn your own lessons from his stories of hard knocks.

Excerpt from Mr. Nobody Even in London a lad had but lately been promised a gratuity for discovering a cave within the iro, n railings Of Leicester Square, in which six or seven sturdy beggars had been accustomed to crouch, smoking their pipes, upon a stone which concealed a number of convenient housebreaking instruments. SO ignorant was the poor mother of the district through which she was travelling that more than once she retraced her steps. But always a sort of instinct taught her to avoid companionship. If she could get out Of the highway, She preferred the cart-track in the fields, or the path in the copses. More than once a merciful waggoner had offered her a lift, but she invariably had refused by a Shake of the head. Perhaps She was afraid she would have to join in conversation as a return for his hospitality, or perhaps she was aware that even hospitality itself might not be safe. It was possible that she might have heard the tale of how a waggoner lately travelling with goods had been attacked by three fellows in smock-frocks, who knocked him down, severely beating him before they stole his packages, and terrify ing to death a young woman who had been in the waggon during the affray.
