Flaming Iguanas: An Illustrated All-Girl Road Novel Thing

by

Flaming Iguanas: An Illustrated All-Girl Road Novel Thing Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tomato Rodriguez hops on her motorcycle and embarks on the ultimate sea-to-shining-sea all-girl adventure — a story in that combines all the best parts of Alice in Wonderland and Easy Rider as Tomato crosses the country in search of the meaning of life, love, and the perfect post office.

Flaming Iguanas is a hilarious novel that combines text, line drawings, rubber stamp art, and a serious dose of attitude. The result is a wild and wonderful ride unlike any you you've ever taken before.

Review:

"Lopez catches fire to three-chord punk rock, splattering her psychic guts all over the page, leaving nothing to the imagination." Natasha Stovall, The Village Voice

Review:

"Lopez gives Tomato an outlaw integrity that Thelma and Louise only hinted at. Tomato's quest for identity and freedom actually becomes our own." Patricia Holt, San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"A potty mouth with a heart of gold." Judy McGuire, Paper

Review:

"There's a sizable, rebelliously tasteless portion of our reading public who will soon want to make Lopez their cartoonist pillow queen." Karen Helfrich, Lambda Book Report

Review:

"It's a fun, fast, and fabulous first novel." James S. Howard, The Fresno Bee

Review:

"Not for the faint of heart....Racy, raunchy, riotously funny, and hilariously incisive." Feminist Bookstore News

Synopsis:

Follows the wild path of Tomato Rodriguez as she makes her way across the country via motorcycle in an effort to visit as many post offices as possible.

About the Author

Erika Lopez lives a much too happy life in San Francisco being the sidekick to her two best friends, Mark and Mary. They all live on the same block. They walk big, leaky dogs and forget to whisper when they talk about other people's butts. Previously she launched Lap Dancing for Mommy into the world and her new book is They Call Me Mad Dog!: A Story for Bitter, Lonely People, but that won't be all. She's got plans. Big plans for big girls in little clothes.
