Share Article

Ted Slate, information guru, editor, tour director, columnist, and now book writer, has published a humorous and poignant re-examination of his well-lived life.

Slate’s stories infest the mind as if they were your own. Part memoir, part cultural study, “My Life and Other Aggravations” is a compelling read that masterfully weaves together essays that are both moving and comic.

In "My Life and Other Aggravations," his first book, Slate mines the exceedingly rich terrain of his life, careers and experiences. Whether examining his second career as a tour director, or sharing the trials and tribulations of aging, Slate's stories are a privileged invitation to unlatch a treasure chest of humorous and often intriguing experiences.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, the author explores such wide-ranging topics as the absurdity of exotic pet ownership, the challenges of texting, drinking calf blood cocktails with Masai tribesmen in Africa, hair-loss woes, to-do-lists, his love-hate relationship with Florida, and his successful acquisition of sold-out Yankee spring training tickets by bartering a colonoscopy for the tickets.

Slate’s stories infest the mind as if they were your own. Part memoir, part cultural study, "My Life and Other Aggravations" is a compelling read that masterfully weaves together essays that are both moving and comic.

The author, before launching into a second career as a tour director, spent a combined thirty-one years with The New York Times Washington Bureau, and Newsweek magazine.

"My Life and Other Aggravations" can be purchased at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes & Noble.
