About the Author

Adolfo Neufeld was born in Argentina. During his adolescence he shared many hours of discussion with Ernesto Guevara, the budding "Che." He aborted a medical career and, penniless, he ventured wayward to see other lands. For three years he traveled around the world hitchhiking across Brazil, the U.S., Europe and Israel; moving between continents as a sailor and a wanderer across lands.

He returned to Argentina to cultivate his writing passion. He tried to study philosophy and literature, but the universities were corrupted by a military-clerical culture. In his second departure his objective was financial independence.

With ten borrowed dollars he jumped ship in New York City. He worked as a bus boy, delivery boy, sandwich man, and door-to-door salesman in Spanish Harlem. He tried his hand as a language teacher, retailer, wholesaler of handicrafts, importer and designer of leather goods. He finally founded his own enterprise gradually clawing his ascent to become another example of the achievers of "The American Dream."

Reviving his early ideals, in 1973 he volunteered to the Yom Kippur War. Thirty-five years later he collected stories of his life strung like beads, laced to his take of the Yom Kippur War, and he wrote To War in a Red Subaru. Only months after the first edition, on a visit to Auschwitz, reconnecting to The Holocaust, he fully understood the true engine that drove him into the war.
In 1995 he retired to Switzerland to center on his youth's ambition: to write. He joined the Geneva Writers Group, and for many years was part of their Steering Committee.

He wrote a "cybernetic story", Love@First Site, now in the publication process.
He is now polishing The Admiral Made a Deal, an extended historical novel, a fifty year saga of an idealist starting in Argentina and ending in Fidel Castro and "Che" Guevara's decaying Cuba, and New York.
