Under the influence of too much art-house cinema and many great pop songs, debauched romance junkies Annie Jones and Isobel Sparks screech off on an epic roadtrip from Edmonton to Montréal. In hot pursuit of musicians and big adventure they tilt at windmills on the prairies and are chased by the demons of love gone wrong. Annie hopes to convince troubadour extraordinaire Hawksley Workman that she is more than a just a regular fan. Sometimes it can take more than 8000 kms to get on the right road. Cadillac Couches is an homage to folk festivals and gigs, buddies and capers, and a paean celebrating the importance of making your mark.
Cadillac Couches was released by Brindle & Glass Publishing September 4, 2012
“I love this angsty, already-of-age, road trip tale of awkward, idealistic music worshipping and very real people who party and suffer as only post-eighties people know how!” —Ben Sures, singer-songwriter
Can’t wait to read it, Sophie!

Thanks for the link! I loved the Peg on my brief visit one wintry weekend years ago. Karaoke and the Forks… Hope you enjoy.
This book’s cover reeled me in; memories of a road trip in a blue VW bug from Toronto to Victoria! Who ever forgets those memories? I would do it again in a millisecond.
Thank you, Sophie for this engaging, memorable read.
Thank you, Deberah, it was super lovely to get your feedback first thing this morning! Those bugs are sweet indeed. I rarely see them here in Ireland…
