In 1985 I submitted my resume to the law firm of Baker & McKenzie for an associate position. Eugene Theroux is a prominent practitioner of international law. Coincidentally, Akin Gump has a major international law practice. Eugene Theroux is the brother of the well-known author Paul Theroux, whose books include Mosquito Coast.
In the 1990s I sent Eugene Theroux a copy of my book Significant Moments on a computer disc. Yes, I am ever the opportunist.
