by Bill See (Author), Rajesh Makwana (Illustrator) - click for more information
This harrowing, deeply personal, coming of age, on the road memoir follows critically acclaimed 80s indie alt rock band Divine Weeks’ first tour in the summer of ’87. Liberated from alcoholic upbringings and rigid cultural constraints, all they have is their music and each other’s friendship. The road is filled with yuppies, brothels, riots, sleeping on floors, spiked drinks, DJs with no pants, and battles with racism. They set out on the road to discovery to drink in all they could and maybe sell a few records. They grew up instead.
"This book is for everyone who’s stood at their crossroads with a dream screaming inside wondering whether to choose the road that goes off the map or fold up their tent and head back home."
"The story is rich in those crazy wonderful memories of guys able to leave it all behind, work out their personal issues among friends, and take that leap that so few of us, especially in today's economic climate, dare to do. It is a story of humor, of tenderness, of the hard side as well as the soft snuggle of humanity and Bill See writes it with a style that is intoxicating. "
