Lulu, Adolf, a moose and a Hummer...If you're in the mood for madness and mayhem, this book satisfies like chocolate cake with more than a touch of chilli. We Ate the Road like Vultures is what happens when Lulu, a girl from down - under, discovers Jack Kerouac alive and living Mexico with a bloke called Chicco, meets the sexy angel back - packer, Adolf and they all dust off the Hummer in the garage...Lynnette Lounsbury's witty, insightful and deeply wise road story is impossible to put down. Written in the scroll style of the renowned Beat writer, and reminiscent of Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, the story unravels vibrantly, enticing readers to reach for Kerouac's classic.
