Welcome to my website. I’m  George Polley, author of The Old Man and The Monkey,  Grandfather and The Raven, Bear, a story about a boy and his most unusual dog and, most recently “The City Has Many Faces, a love story about Mexico City


city has many faces front cover only

When Minnesotan Joseph Manning arrives in Mexico City, he experiences a world that is beyond anything he has imagined, a city with an audible heartbeat, a deep-down throbbing that comes from deep beneath the great city twenty-four hours a day. It is also a city of haunted houses, a museum filled with ghosts, an elderly Indian shaman, Aztec ruins, mystery, a brutal cop nicknamed “Snake” that runs a protection racket, laughter and romance. And for Joseph Manning, it is ultimately a love story with a beautiful young woman named Lisa who, like the city itself, will not let him go.

What readers have been saying about it:

“Though I was late getting to it, “The City Has Many Faces…” was one of my favorite reads of 2015. Entertaining, thoughtful, and poignant. A true pleasure!” — Robert O.

“A delicate treasure of a book.”  — Lizzie E.

“This is a book which will grip you and fascinate you from the first page. Don’t miss it!”      — Gerry McC.

    Hello George ( geoge?) I like the way you write. i am Krishna Prasad from Chennai, India. My email id is: thewagonmagazine@gmail.com. Can I talk to you further?

  3. I particularly enjoyed The Great Escape. As I inch closer to that woman’s predicament, I see more clearly that age is the one thing none of us can escape. All we can do is delay.

    You say you’re going to deactivate this blog. But why, George? Don’t do it!
