Americana (And the Act of Getting Over it).
Created by Luke Healy.
This is one of my favourite books from recent years and it is created by the always funny and insightful Luke Healy.
Here’s a little of what it’s about.
‘The Pacific Crest Trail runs 2660 miles, from California’s border with Mexico to Washington’s border with Canada. To walk it is to undertake a gruelling test of body and spirit… challenge accepted.
This intimate and engaging autobiographical work recounts the author’s own attempt to walk the length of the USA’s west coast. Healy’s life-changing journey weaves in and out of reflections on his experiences in America and his development as an artist, navigating both the trail itself and the unique culture of the people who attempt to complete it.’
If you haven’t managed to get a copy and/or fancied listening to the creator talk about the gruelling, intriguing, funny and tragic story in his own words why not pop down to The Owl Bookshop in Kentish Town on Thursday 12th September from 6.30pm. And yes there will be drinks! I’ll be there and ther’ll be a Q & A with Luke that is bound to be very amusing!
