A cross country hitchhiking journey with America s most beloved weirdoJohn Waters is putting his life on the line Armed with wit a pencil thin mustache and a cardboard sign that reads I m Not Psycho he hitchhikes across America from Baltimore to San Francisco braving lonely roads and treacherous drivers But who should we be more worried about the delicate film director with genteel manners or the unsuspecting travelers transporting the Pope of Trash Before he leaves for this bizarre adventure Waters fantasizes about the best and worst possible scenarios a friendly drug dealer hands over piles of cash to finance films with no questions asked a demolition derby driver makes a filthy sexual request in the middle of a race a gun toting drunk terrorizes and holds him hostage and a Kansas vice squad entraps and throws him in jail So what really happens when this cult legend sticks out his thumb and faces the open road His real life rides include a gentle eighty one year old farmer who is convinced Waters is a hobo an indie band on tour and the perverse filmmaker s unexpected hero a young sandy haired Republican in a Corvette Laced with subversive humor and warm intelligence Carsick is an unforgettable vacation with a wickedly funny companionand a celebration of America s weird astonishing and generous citizenry
