My next book is coming out this summer, though it's not exactly like Let's Get Lost. I think readers of LGL should enjoy it, though! I hope.

This book was partially inspired by my travels and road trips, as well as the desire to tell a road trip story from the point of view of people not on the road trip.(less)

“Funny, how it took a little bit of pain to remember that certain parts of yourself were alive.”
Adi Alsaid, Let's Get Lost

“People hurt each other. It happens to everyone. Intentionally, unintentionally, regretfully or not. It's a part of what we do as people. The beauty is that we have the ability to heal and forgive.”
Adi Alsaid, Let's Get Lost

“It was time to let go of the mad desire to remember. It was time to start living whatever life would come. In the present, not the past.”
Adi Alsaid, Let's Get Lost

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I, too, had set out to be remembered. I had wanted to create something permanent in my life- some proof that everything in its way mattered, that working hard mattered, that feeling things mattered, that even sadness and loss mattered, because it was all part of something that would live on. But I had also come to recognize that not everything needs to be durable. the lesson we have yet to learn from dogs, that could sustain us, is that having no apprehension of the past or future is not limiting but liberating. Rin Tin Tin did not need to be remembered in order to be happy; for him, it was always enough to have that instant when the sun was soft, when the ball was tossed and caught, when the beloved rubber doll was squeaked. Such a moment was complete in itself, pure and sufficient.”
Susan Orlean

“I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless; it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.”
Louis C.K.

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”
W. Somerset Maugham
