Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As Troost’s many fans could predict, following in the footsteps of his literary idol turned out to be a hilarious, if some harrowing experience. In the midst of all his misadventures, however, is also the story of how Troost’s eventful trek stabilized him and renewed his connections with the world around him.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“A rambunctious, intimate trip well worth the armchair time.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
