I absolutely adore John Waters and this book has solidified my feelings!! Brilliant!! Thanks for the great read John!! Was hard to put this book down!!
2/3 Silly; 1/3 Excellent
By One Suitcase
Truth is more fun than fiction. I found John's two novellas that begin Carsick largely cute and silly, seldom funny. But the last 1/3 of Carsick where he writes of what really happened when he caught 21 rides from his home in Baltimore to his apartment in San Francisco is much more entertaining and trenchant. As one who has hitchhiked across the USA -- 7 times in the early 1970s -- his account brought back many of my hitchhiking memories and I was reminded once again of all the good and nice people out there who go about their daily lives and occasionally give a stranger a lift.

Some of the made up rides were too much of a stretch to be interesting or funny.
Liked the actual / real rides best .
funny across country trip with hilarious waters
This book is extremely funny. Great obscure references such as a gay Eddie Haskell ro Richard Tyson from Two Moon Junction. Waters still has a great commentary about middle america, good campy fun!
