Product Description

From the Back Cover

Barry Osgathorpe, known in the seventies as Ishmael the Zen Road Warrior, has decided to hole up for the nineties. A person can't even drive his Volkswagen Beetle with a clear conscience any more, for fear of polluting the environment. Yet, powerful forces are converging that will get him on the road again. When Barry learns that Volkswagens are being blown up all over the country, that a gang of skinheads is cruising the streets in a fleet of customized Beetles, and that his ex-girlfriend's deranged, Volkswagen-obsessed father and her current VW-collecting boyfriend are missing, he knows it's time to put the pedal to the metal. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most original books I have read in a very long time. The title intrigues and the content does not disappoint. All sorts of social comment - neo nazis, good against evil, love story hiding under the umbrella of the love affair with a Volskwagen Beetle.
Unlike anything I have read before, read it now!

Format: Hardcover
You should not expect an intricate plot and deep characters in this book and his predecessor Street Sleeper. The story is only an excuse to string together a series of absurd events happening to a bunch of unusual characters. In passing you learn a lot of interesting tidbits about the VW Beetle and its origin in Nazi Germany. All of it is incredibly hilarious.
