About this title



From the Publisher:

Praise for Boondocking by Tricia Bauer:

"In this surprising gem of a first novel, Bauer writes with a fresh eye for the minutiae of everyday life, reminiscent of Barbara Kingsolver and Bobbie Ann Mason." - Joe Manning, Library Journal

"Boondocking is a story about an unusual - and mostly unknown - way of American life. It is about the new American family, grandparents raising grandchildren. Bauer's writing is graceful and spare, her characters genuine." - Janet Cooper, The Providence Journal

"Tricia Bauer has a keen eye for detail, which she uses to good effect in her first novel, Boondocking...Bayer not only provides a vivid, believable account of the Vaeths and their adventures on the road, but she also offers a closer look at the many ways in which trailer-life affects their sense of themselves and their perception of the world spinning around them." - Merle Rubin, The Christian Science Monitor

"Bauer writers easily and well, and is adept at showing the essential poetry in simplicity...Bauer details a unique portrait of a transient RV 'culture.'" - Debra Ginsberg, The San Diego Union-Tribune

"Rita's childhood and adolescence are journeys within a journey, insightfully described as the novel explores the evolving configurations of family and diverse definitions of 'home.'" - Colleen Kelly Warren, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"In exploring seldom touched ground in contemporary literature - finding your way in retirement, when for many people the usual signposts in life are cast aside: work, the house where children were raised, proximity to family and friends, and the common rises and falls of a structured daily life...Bauer is strong at drawing her main characters." - John A. Cutter, St. Petersburg Times (FL)

"Anyone who has wanted to sell his house, give up most of his possessions and hit the road in a recreational vehicle should enjoy reading Boondocking." --The Chattanooga Times

"Bauer is very good at the insightful moments and the comic touches." - Betsy Willeford, Newark Star-Ledger

"This mixture of tragedy, suspense, and intergenerational relationships comes off as original and moving." - Rob Neufield, Asheville Citizen-Times (NC)

"Engaging and sympathetic characters."-Carole Goldberg, The Hartford Courant

"In scene after scene, Bauer captures the resilience and gutsy determination of the Vaeths as they crisscross the country's backroads and campgrounds." --Feminist Bookstore News

"This is a compassionately told story about the unexpected twists in life and the accommodations that must be made." - Enid Robbins, Booklist

"Bauer's novel has been drawing critical praise for its compassionate look at ordinary people and everyday life...Boondocking reveals some of the compensations of coping with change and loss: adventure, unexpected friendships, the camaraderie of the campsites, new-found courage, and deep family ties." --Virginia Read, American Bookseller Magazine

"Tricia Bauer has carved out a place for herself in the depiction of everyday life. The wonder, and the pleasure, of Tricia Bauer's fiction is that she engages sophisticated readers in the quotidian minutiae of ordinary characters without being patronizing. We read with interest about their joys and sorrows; we care what happens to them. Bauer finds humanity in the mundane." - Joe Baum, The Independent, East Hampton & Southampton, NY
