The Road Trip Dialogues - Jass Richards

Bio:  Jass Richards has an M.A. in Philosophy and is (therefore?) a sit-down comic.  This Will Not Look Good on My Resume is part fiction and, alas, part memoir.  It reportedly made her formatter snort root beer out her nose.  Richards has just received an Arts Council grant to work on The Blasphemy Tour, the sequel to The Road Trip Dialogues.

Product description:
Rev and Dylan are intelligent, sensitive, idealistic, enthusiastic, and – utter failures. When they reconnect twenty years after teacher’s college, Rev is en route to Montreal to see the fireworks festival. (Something with great social and political import.) (Oh shut up. I tried. For twenty years. So fuck it.). Dylan goes along for the ride. (Typical.)

Along the way, they attend a student protest. Against student debt. Sponsored by a car dealership. Understandably, ‘Where did we go wrong?’ becomes ‘What the hell is wrong with the world??’

They spend much of their time in Montreal hopelessly stoned. And looking after cats they can’t find. …

The Road Trip Dialogues is a coming of age story.  For those in their forties.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
The fascinating dialogue.  And the funny shit.

Q: Why did you go indie?
Couldn't get a 'real' publisher to publish my stuff.
