Overview

In this novella Wm. Anthony Connolly performs a juggling act between hilarity and heartbreak. Connolly's focus is Michael Cross, a middle-aged college professor and writer who wants very much to leave his rebellious past behind. But life just won't let him. In the course of a week, Cross will crash his car, be publicly humiliated, be visited by someone he'd soon forgot, be mistaken for Nick Nolte (again!), eulogize a dog, attend a gay wedding, and travel clear across country with his 16-year-old daughter, Hope, in a uniquely-decorated VW Microbus. All this while coming to terms with the end of his marriage, the dereliction of his youthful promise, and an over-active bladder. In the end the strange and beautiful trip helps Cross get back what he may have lost - himself.
