Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pop-culture junkie Sean Condon, along with his calm friend David, set out on a pilgrimage from New York to San Francisco. Along the way, Sean investigates the legendary people, places, and TV programs that sustained him as a child. Can he survive the channel switching, the miles of highway, country and western radio, and the all-you-can-eat fast food bargains? In "Drive Thru America", Condon provides his humorous take on life in the United States.

Synopsis:

If you've ever wanted to drive across the US but couldn't find the time (or afford the gas), Drive Thru America is perfect for you.

In his search for American myths and realities - along with comfort, cable TV and good, reasonably priced coffee - Sean Condon paints a hilarious road-portrait of the USA.

Ken MacRae, March 30, 2007 (view all comments by Ken MacRae)
Caution: Baptist, country and western dulcimer playing hillbillies may find Sean's humour objectionable.
Some quotes from the 'Drive':
- 'It's quite god-fearing around here. This I'm assuming from the hundreds of mainly Baptist churches we pass every few feet.'
- 'he'd inadvertently consumed Jesus in a taco the previous evening.'
- 'Tennessee radio sucks - it's all either country (the worst musical form the world has ever known) or country-rock (the worst musical marriage the world has ever known - except of course Michael and Lisa-Marie).'
- 'Fat Bob's ceaseless sweating, burping and farting created a rich fetid air in the control room - but one that I believe added a necessary note of country and western authenticity to the song.'
- 'Alabama....So far it looks the same as Tennessee, except possibly a little more ugly and God-forsaken.'
- 'Passed the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. Contents: Lynyrd Skynyrd and Alabama. Maybe an old dulcimer.'
OR: 'Maybe none of this is happening at all. Maybe we're both still asleep in Montreal.'
