A Review: “Didn’t See That Coming, The Reminiscences of Roger James Kuhns”
Sept. 3, 2014 | Peninsula Pulse

“Fans who have enjoyed Kuhns’ dramatic monologues will want a copy of his book [Didn’t See That Coming], as will anyone who is an armchair traveler at heart, curious about exotic but highly inconvenient (and sometimes risky) locations around the globe. Kuhns will disappoint neither audience.” – Gary Jones, Peninsula Pulse

“A gifted writer and musician, Kuhns has used his life experiences to craft monologues that are as culturally and scientifically enlightening as they are emotionally moving.” – Judy M. Drew, former Executive Director of the Third Avenue Playhouse, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

“Well-crafted, skillfully interwoven stories… I would’ve happily stayed longer around the campfire in the company of these characters and this storyteller.” – Roberta Parker, 2009 Minnesota Fringe Festival

    I had the privilege of seeing Roger perform one of the monologues in this book at The Clearing in Wisconsin. An absolute pleasure! Roger’s adventures will take you to places you never imagined with a colorful cast of characters to guide the way. His attention to detail paints a vivid picture to spark your imagination, allowing you to travel to extreme and desolate ends of civilization without leaving the comfort of your favorite chair.

    In the way a travelogue, Roger’s monologues take you there; in the way of a scientist he immerses you in the unique microcontext of what makes the place special . . . Spell binding, fascinating, unbelievable, hilarious, Roger delivers it all . . . no matter what the subject matter. Never miss an opportunity to “travel” with him.

    Fans who have enjoyed Kuhns’ dramatic monologues will want a copy of his book, as will anyone who is an armchair traveler at heart, curious about exotic but highly inconvenient (and sometimes risky) locations around the globe. Kuhns will disappoint neither audience . . . the author’s ability to capture settings, characters and situations, making them come to life for his readers. At the same time he is a contemplative narrator reflecting upon himself, the people around him, and the societies that he encounters. He is a world citizen who moves unscathed from one culture to another, observing, reporting, and contemplating.
