Synopsis

My Road Trip to the Pretty Girl Capital of the World by Brian Yansky

Its 1979, and Simons life is unraveling before his very eyes. He doesnt get along with his father, his girlfriend has just dumped him, hes in trouble with the school authorities, and hes been arrested for underage drinking and smoking pot not to mention selling the stuff. And to top it off, hes adopted, and his parents act like its something shameful. He wrestles open his parents lockbox, finds the names and last known location of his birth parents, and decides to leave Mansfield, Iowa, and head to Texas in search of his origins. His encounters with an Elvis impersonator (who may just be the missing man himself) along with a young woman on the lam and two hapless drifters add up to a picaresque road-triptale that is not only very funny but honest in the telling. My Road Trip to the Pretty Girl Capital of the World is a debut novel that perfectly captures the flavor of the post-hippie grit, post-slacker cool, and weird-techno wealth of Austin.
