Cadillac Couches is a picaresque road trip novel that journeys from prairie to big city and back again. A quixotic tale set in the late nineties and framed by the popular Edmonton Folk Music Festival, it follows two music-smitten twentysomething women as they search for love and purpose. Annie Jones is trying to put her big love, Sullivan, behind her and squash her demons of anxiety and compulsion. In a post-fest funk, she and her more worldly sidekick Isobel jump in Annie's 1972 Volkswagen Beetle and race across the country to Montreal where her real-life fantasy man, Hawksley Workman, is doing a gig. A year later Annie and Isobel end up back at the folk festival, this time in a much different position. A witty first novel, Cadillac Couches is a story about finding one's holy grail in life. The book comes with its own playlist.

Review quote

This novel has a blend of Will Ferguson-like love/despair of Canada, with the contemporary zing of writers like Susan Isaacs, M.A.C. Farrant and Susan Juby. But Cadillac Couches is entirely its own being and I highly recommend getting to know it! --Fabbity Fab Book Reviews
