Before he leaves for this strange event, Waters fantasizes in regards to the most sensible and worst attainable situations: a pleasant drug broker arms over piles of money to finance movies with out questions requested, a demolition-derby motive force makes a dirty sexual request in the midst of a race, a gun-toting under the influence of alcohol terrorizes and holds him hostage, and a Kansas vice squad entraps and throws him in prison. So what particularly occurs whilst this cult legend stands out his thumb and faces the open highway? His real-life rides comprise a gradual eighty-one-year-old farmer who's confident Waters is a hobo, an indie band on journey, and the perverse filmmaker’s unforeseen hero: a tender, sandy-haired Republican in a Corvette.

Laced with subversive humor and hot intelligence, Carsick is an unforgettable holiday with a wickedly humorous companion—and a party of America’s bizarre, staggering, and beneficiant citizenry.
