By John Waters
A cross-country hitchhiking trip with America's so much liked weirdo
John Waters is placing his lifestyles 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 apprehensive approximately, the fragile movie director with genteel manners or the unsuspecting tourists transporting the Pope of Trash?
sooner than he leaves for this strange experience, Waters fantasizes concerning the top and worst attainable situations: a pleasant drug broker arms over piles of money to finance movies without questions requested, a demolition-derby driving force makes a dirty sexual request in the course of a race, a gun-toting under the influence of alcohol terrorizes and holds him hostage, and a Kansas vice squad entraps and throws him in detention center. So what quite occurs while this cult legend stands out his thumb and faces the open street? His real-life rides comprise a gradual eighty-one-year-old farmer who's confident Waters is a hobo, an indie band on travel, 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, remarkable, and beneficiant citizenry.
