really liked it
Read in August, 2012 — I own a copy , read count: 1

Great way "to ride" with a writer across America while he's on a book tour. Thoroughly enjoyed the adventures (some of them near-misses) of "Harold Who" (always humbling when a bookstore manager doesn't recognize you as the author booked to do a signing). There's a nice subplot about his Uncle Reg's lost manuscript that deserved more telling and a curious contretemps with Garrison Keillor. This second memoir by Mosher is also a great read for anyone teaching writing to any age group OR for someone wondering what inspiration to use for writing the Great American Novel (in case your high school English is rusty).
