This Hasn't Been a Very Magical Journey So Far

by Homeless

Condition: New

Miami: Expat Press, 2019. First edition. Paperback. New. 258pp. Octavo [21.5cm]; illustrated wraps. The artist known as Homeless turns a corner and laps a milestone with his long-awaited comic fable finally in print. "A children's book for adults," This Hasn't Been a Magical Journey So Far is a vulgar cartoon, a picaresque road trip into the surreal, and a heartbreaking love story all the same. Join Sid, the leather-studded uncouth cat, and Hank Williams, the world-weary lovelorn protagonist, as they weave down the freeway of their strange imaginations on a decrepit van named Nancy, through the most peculiar of detours and fast times high and low, with a menagerie of oddball characters toward their destination, the haunted memory of an old flame named Patsy Cline, love of non-country music legend Hank Williams' life, who he crossed paths with in a mental hospital and who made the downpour of centipede rain in his head stop. This Hasn't Been a Very Magical Journey So Far is whimsical and frank about the human condition in a fairy tale context that belies its wry title. It's that rare crop of novel that chokes you up while making you smile through and through, nothing short of a literary miracle. A singularly magical journey with a hefty sum on its mind. Should you desire a companion for your emotional hangover, fellow travelers will keep you in gear with a cool head through this intoxicating spell down the dedicated arteries of catharsis. This Hasn't Been a Magical Journey So Far is a powerful and indelible testament to that aching span between love and loss. Get in loser, we're going to the place in our hearts where we hide. -- from publisher.
