All Encompassing Trip
by Nicole Del Sesto
Meet Nikki Nasco: 40, single, obsessive, neurotic, unorthodox and unexpectedly fun. She is having a very normal day. She goes to the gym, she calls her mother, and she stresses out about not having her Top Five desert island CD's selected.
Meet Amber Lawson: 35, lesbian, driven, aerobics instructor. She too is having a very normal day. She attends law school, teaches Boot Camp and receives a phone call from Nikki, the purpose of which she never fully understands, but knows there is a deserted island involved.
And then the darkness comes…
In a world where coffee is no longer available, the only television shows are reality TV re-runs, and the animals are talking back, Nikki, Amber and a singing Coyote in a do-rag are out to restore the light (and hopefully prevent Nikki's eyes from being stolen by an Irish midget).
Normal is missing. Reward.
“Del Sesto pays homage to Tom Robbins and Christopher Moore in this clever, insightful, and flat-out hilarious novel while maintaining an entirely original point of view, making All Encompassing Trip one of my favorite books of the year!“
—Jen Lancaster, author of Bitter is the New Black
“All Encompassing Trip is a trip! Imagine Kafka, Kerouac, and Douglas Adams on the road, and you’ll get a feel for this completely original, witty, and wild book that’s (thank goodness!) anything but normal. Del Sesto’s prose sparkles. What a great debut.”
—Lori Jakiela, author of Miss New York Has Everything
