Tim Gatto was born in 1950 and enlisted in the Army in 1968. The Vietnam War began shaping and changing his ideas about American foreign policy, and, still serving, he joined the protest movement. Later, after witnessing the fraudulent run-up to the Iraq war engineered by the Bush administration, he became a highly active and increasingly popular online writer. In 2009, he published From Complicity to Contempt, a lively and uniquely revealing selection of his writings through 2006. Tim lives in South Carolina, “a liberal in one of the reddest states in the country.” Kimchee Days is his first novel.
