About this title


What do you get when you throw two postmodern pilgrims, two cats and a Macintosh into a twenty-six-foot motor-home? A high-octane, high-camp asphalt odyssey through the offbeat corners of America! The Monks are Jim Crotty and Michael Lane, who quit the work-a-day world in 1986 and hit the road in search of enlightenment, adventure, and a well-stocked K Mart. Along the way they created the world's only mobile magazine, appropriately called Monk. Now, in their first book, they tell the amazing and hilarious story of life on the run - encounters with extraterrestrial canines and Peruvian princesses, plus warmhearted tales of hermits, cowgirls, waffles, and more. Experience the On The Road of the nineties!
