Driving Stevie Fracasso by Barry Divola

ISBN: 9781460759479 PUBLISHER: HarperCollins Publishers (Australia) Pty Ltd FORMAT: Paperback PAGES: 352 PUBLICATION DATE: 3.03.2021 DIMENSIONS: 23.5 x 15.4 x 2.6 cm

DESCRIPTION: Two estranged brothers, one stolen car and a road trip from Texas to New York. What could possibly go wrong? For fans of Nick Hornby, David Nicholls and Jonathan Tropper.

Jaded music journalist Rick McLennan knows his life is going south when he loses his job, his apartment and his long-term girlfriend all on the same day. But then he is thrown a lifeline - a commission to write the story of his ex-rock-star brother, Stevie, and drive him from Austin, Texas, to New York to play one final gig. One small problem: the brothers haven't spoken in thirty years.

Rick knows it's a bad idea. But he's out of choices. So he gets behind the wheel of a beaten-up 1985 fits Nissan Stanza and drives towards his destiny. He's about to find everything he didn't know he was missing. It's September 2001.

From award-winning journalist and author Barry Divola comes a glorious, music-infused, rollicking road-trip novel - think High Fidelity meets The Big Lebowski meets The Darjeeling Limited. A smart, funny and wholly endearing story about how, though we may at times lose ourselves along the way, the road always leads back to family and the things that bring us joy.

'Of course this road trip comes with a top-quality mix-tape - it's by Barry Divola - but it's the layers to this story, and its humour and its heart, that make this journey irresistible.' - Nick Earls
