Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the great American tradition of funny road narratives-- from Mark Twain to Hunter S. Thompson--a young journalist searches for his first big break down the lonesome highways of the Southwest and northern Mexico. Alternating chapters of fiction and nonfiction provide a hilarious account of Jake Silverstein's misadventures on the hunt for an elusive magazine article--a journey that becomes a quest to understand the purpose of journalism and the nature of storytelling.

Synopsis:

“The road novel—or the road half-novel—has rarely been funnier or more appealing.”—Benjamin Moser, Harper’s

Synopsis:

Silverstein's adventures and prose are first-rate. From searching for the grave of Ambrose Bierce in West Texas (fact), to a treasure hunt in the Louisiana bayou (fiction), the memoir traces five years in the author's life when he moved across the American Southwest and Mexico hoping to find a story worth selling that would launch his journalism career.
