Absolutely fantastic, poetically written book about two women backpacking Europe, staying in squats, hitchhiking, and just generally doing what men have been writing about for ages, but women are always told it's not safe to do. It's "[b:On the Road|6288|The Road|Cormac McCarthy|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21E8H3D1JSL._SL75_.jpg|3355573]", but better written and from a woman's perspective. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970910134, Paperback)

A punk rock vision quest told in the tradition of the anarchist travel story, Off The Map is narrated by two young women as they discard their maps, fears, and anything resembling a plan, and set off to Europe. Wandering across that continent, the dozens of vignettes are the details of the whole - a squatted castle surrounded by tourists on the Spanish coast, a philosophizing businessman on the highways of France, a placa full of los crustos in Barcelona...Originating as a zine given out to a few friends in Prague, this has now received the Crimethinc lavish production treatment, and clocks in at 146 pages, complete with photographs, illustrations and a cover featuring original artwork by Nikki McClure. Cometbus eat your heart out.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:18:26 -0400)

An 11-year-old girl watches her father come down with a crippling depression. Over one summer, she learns answers to several mysteries and come to terms with love and loss.
