The Laughable but True Story of an Impoverished Indie-Musician Traveling the World
Train-Hopping… Hitchhiking with Drug Dealers… Emu Roommates…
Who says you need money to travel the world?
After being fired and cheated on over the span of a few short weeks, Tom decided to embark on a lifelong dream of traveling the world. He and two friends set out with little more than the backpacks on their shoulders and daydreams of a grand adventure a la Kerouac.
Soon the trio found themselves sleeping under bridges, hitchhiking with drug dealers, befriending prostitutes, living as homeless persons, hopping trains, and finding all kinds of other trouble to get into.
What People are Saying
“The only time I was able to stop reading this book is when I was laughing too hard to continue.”
Truly a great story! It made me laugh out loud, a lot. It also pulled my heart strings—I may or may not have shed a tear. I recommend for anyone.”
“Listen, I am NOT a person who likes to read. I had to force myself to put this book down at night to go to bed. Well worth the time to read it!!”
Couldn’t put this down. Genuinely had me laughing til my sides hurt at some points and sitting on the edge of my seat at others.
This book is hilarious and so hard to put down! Tom's writing style makes it feel like you're sitting with him, having a beer and he's telling you the stories.
I read almost 300 pages before I could put the damn thing down. The way Tom writes, he's not only hilarious in his description of events - but you feel as though you're sitting across from him as he's telling the story.
