Sideways is the story of two friends, Miles and Jack, going away together for the last time to steep themselves in everything that makes it good to be young and single: pinot, putting, and prowling bars. In the week before Jack plans to marry, the pair heads out from Los Angeles to the Santa Ynez wine country. For Jack, the tasting tour is Seven Days to D-Day, his final stretch of freedom. For Miles--who has divorced his wife, is facing an uncertain career, and has lost his passion for living--the trip is a week-long opportunity to evaluate his past, his future, and himself. A raucous and surprising novel filled with wonderful details about wine, Sideways is also a thought provoking and funny book about men, women, and human relationships.

About the Author:

Rex Pickett is a California-based screenwriter and author who is most well known for writing Sideways, the book that became a movie and one of the largest-grossing comedy films in Hollywood. The screenplay for the film was named one of the top 100 screenplays of all time by the Writers Guild of America while the movie itself was nominated for five Oscars (winning Best Screenplay) and swept the Golden Globe Awards for 2005. Pickett also wrote the script for the Oscar-winning short film My Mother Dreams the Satan's Disciples in New York and has garnered numerous awards for his nationwide travel and magazine writing. Pickett resides in Santa Monica, California.

From AudioFile:

Miles, a self-loathing oenophile, has 35 rejection slips stuck to the walls of his dismal apartment and is desperate to hear from his agent, who just told him: "Richard Davis at Conundrum liked your book." Jack is a self-loving actor desperate to get laid before he marries Babs at the end of the week. Together they head into Santa Ynez wine country, desperate for pinot and a chance--maybe the last chance--to connect as friends. The novel is funny, sad, and good-hearted, as was the Indie movie whose screenplay won the Oscar for best adaptation. Golden Voice Scott Brick punches out every line. His delivery holds the reader's attention but damages the story in spots, since the light, ironic touches are blown away.
