By John Waters
Carsick is the New York Times bestselling chronicle of a cross-country hitchhiking trip with America's such a lot loved weirdo
John Waters is placing his existence at the line. Armed with wit, a pencil-thin mustache, and a cardboard signal that reads "I'm now not Psycho," he hitchhikes throughout the United States from Baltimore to San Francisco, braving lonely roads and treacherous drivers. yet who may still we be extra nervous approximately, the fragile movie director with genteel manners or the unsuspecting tourists transporting the Pope of Trash?
Before he leaves for this extraordinary event, Waters fantasizes concerning the most sensible and worst attainable eventualities: a pleasant drug broker palms over piles of money to finance motion pictures without questions requested, a demolition-derby motive force makes a dirty sexual request in the midst of a race, a gun-toting inebriated terrorizes and holds him hostage, and a Kansas vice squad entraps and throws him in detention center. So what rather occurs while this cult legend stands out his thumb and faces the open street? His real-life rides contain a gradual eighty-one-year-old farmer who's confident Waters is a hobo, an indie band on journey, and the perverse filmmaker's unforeseen hero: a tender, sandy-haired Republican in a Corvette.
Laced with subversive humor and hot intelligence, Carsick is an unforgettable holiday with a wickedly humorous companion—and a party of America's bizarre, awesome, and beneficiant citizenry.
