John and Eve Muir, original publishers of The People’s Guide to Mexico. John wrote, with Tosh Gregg, the cult classic How to Keep Your Volkswagon Alive, a Manual of Step-by-Step procedures for the Compleat Idiot. John and Eve were at the center of a creative group of friends who met each year for wild “beach parties” in Mexico. We remain an extended family. John died just before I was born, but Eve was an important person in my life. Fabulous, and quirky, and kind. During the final months of her life, I had the pleasure to work with her in New Orleans on John’s final manuscript, which had been languishing unpublished since his death in 1977. Stay tuned.
