Book Description

30 Sep 2010
Miles and Jack are back. It’s seven years later. Miles has written a novel that has been made into a successful movie, and the movie has changed his life. Jack, contrarily, is divorced, has a kid, and is on the skids. Phyllis, Miles’s mom, has suffered a stroke that’s left her wheelchair-bound and wasting away in assisted-living. She desperately wants to be with her sister in Wisconsin. When Miles gets invited to be the master of ceremonies at a Pinot Noir festival in Oregon, he hatches a harebrained road trip. With Jack as his co-pilot, he leases a handicapped-equipped rampvan, hires a pot-smoking Filipina caretaker and, with his mother’s rascally Yorkie in tow, they take off for Wisconsin via Oregon’s fabled Willamette Valley. Hilarious, steeped in wine, Vertical’s tragi-comic-epic journey takes Sideways in a new and ultimately deeply moving direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars A road trip thats more than a journey 12 Jan 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Sideways. Its both top on my favourite book and film list after all this time. Naturally, I had concerns that Vertical couldn't be as good. So when I started reading Vertical I just wanted it to be Sideways all over again. Exactly the same candy bar... I wanted to be wrapped up in the story just as much and I worried it couldn't work the magic. But it did. My concerns evaporated as I caught up with Miles, on top of his game but still mixed up and thereby still endearing, his wing man Jack, taken down a peg or two but still solid as a rock and others, some new, some making guest appearances and some who I didn't realise had so much to give. And as the wine flowed and opened up it became more than Sideways, this is Miles' journey with just even more outrageous funnies and wince inducing scapes than before. Like Sideways this is one I'll keep going back to. And one year I'll be going to the IPNC! See you there!

Read this if you enjoyed Sideways (the film or the book) and/or if you love Pinot Noir. An interesting read.

I loved the original Sideways film, so picked up the book, and this follow up. I was concerned about a follow up to Sideways, but what Rex Pickett has done with the characters is brilliant.
