This book is the saga of a middle aged, alcohol and tobacco dependent, overweight man who, at the lowest point in his life starts an accidental journey across the country. He discovers that people are not all bad, that the human spirit prevails and that love can be found in the most unexpected place ... right around the corner. The author, Ron McLarty, is a fairly well known actor and a frequent narrator of audio books (Stephen King using him almost exclusively). Note for trivia buffs - this book was originally released only as an audio book. Stephen King said of the book, "It is probably the best little book that you can never read." Well, now you can as it has been published in good old binding, paper and ink.
