Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America | John Waters
The visual artist behind such cult films as Hairspray traces his haphazard cross-country hitchhiking journey at the sides of a motley group of unsuspecting drivers, including a gentle farmer, an indie band and the author's unexpected hero. 75,000 first printing.

I did manage a quick library stop yesterday to pick up a hold before I spent all day at my company picnic & made adash into the library bookstore for their 50% off sale. I scored these two books on my #TBR for just $1. 🤗I think the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu & John Waters are a diverse group & Waters apparently meets #EveryKindaPeople on his cross country hitchhiking road trip.

If you love John Waters, this book ( do the audiobook, he narrates!) will entertain you enormously! I‘m from Baltimore and I used to live in his neighborhood, and adore his quirky, trashy art. I highly recommend it and won‘t give it all away.

Blaire This seems like a great audiobook choice! I‘m almost finished with one this may be up next. 6mo
Samplergal It‘s very entertaining. Enjoy. 6mo

Kaye That is a creepy statue. Is a horse buried there or what‘s it for ? 11mo
Bookwormjillk That is creepy. Is it a Pet Semetary?? 11mo
DarcysMom @kaye there are two of them that are along the property line of the house. One marks an edge of the driveway, the one I took a picture of is random. I think they are supposed to be decorative. 11mo
DarcysMom @Bookwormjillk It's a decoration. 😋 11mo

Another rainy day. The rain and wind really slowed me down. The rain stopped just as I got home. The clouds cleared and the foothills have snow! And today's book is really funny! 🙃

Started listening to this #audiobook on #Libby yesterday. It's narrated by John Waters, I'm 2 hours in and we're still on his imagining the best case scenario for his hitchhiking trip across America... I can't even imagine what his idea of worst case scenario is going to look like. 😂

JackOBotts Oh just you wait! 😬😉 2y
GarthRanzz I would so watch a TV version of this with him. 2y
AmandaL @JackOBotts Oh, I can imagine! 2y
AmandaL @GarthRanzz That would be amazing! I would so watch that too. 2y
JackOBotts @GarthRanzz & @AmandaL Oh how I wish I could‘ve been a passerby to pick him up! 2y

I DID NOT have a great day today and my night at work started off quite turbulent. After I finished Beautiful You ( I wasn't ready for the content however I couldn't put it down once I started) I started this on audio. I've been laughing ever since. Nothing like sarcasm and dark humor to turn your day ALL THE WAY AROUND!

John Waters hitchhikes from Baltimore to San Francisco...would've loved to have picked this man up...such genius! The last section of the book (his actual adventure) was the most enjoyable for me, though the first two novellas are Waters at his filthiest. 🤘🏼🤘🏼

Hobbinol ❤️John Waters! 3y

I want to plan a road trip to visit all your bookstores. So many books, so many stores, so much love! (I'm not going to hitchhike. That could be dangerous. Or, it could be the beginning of an awesome book like this one.) #getindie

LeahBergen Do you think anyone will pick you up with your massive trunk full of books? 😂 3y

Just picked up this beauty on audiobook from the library. John Waters seems like a perfect road trip companion!

John Waters is a God. This book is a collection of real and imagined stories that take place while Waters' hitchhikes across the U.S. It's funny, ridiculous, strange, funny, charming and gross. Waters is beyond clever, a genuine artist who doesn't care what anyone thinks. His stories are refreshing.

LeahBergen Such a great quote 4y

I really enjoyed this book, adventurous and funny! Part fiction, part non fiction, the book is divided into three parts; the good rides that could happen, the bad rides that could happen, and the real rides that actually happened as he hitched his way cross country.
