Flying High
by Robert Dalton

The biography of Robert Dalton takes the reader on an exciting journey through twenty-seven cities and six countries. It is also a moving study of addiction to alcohol, to prostitutes, and to job-hopping. How did such an intelligent person live such a harrowing life? Brought up to be a college professor he was thrust into a life of endless wandering and brutal cravings. He was truly flying high; crossing continents at a whirlwind pace, while binging uncontrollably.
