On the Literary Road with a Writer
Percy Varrants writes books and poems. She shares literary adventures/books from the past and this current story. One summer, while promoting one of her latest novels at the Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago, she buys a book which then leads her to Jack Kerouac's classic novel, On the Road. Unlike Kerouac, though, Percy travels mostly on the "stepping stone sidewalks in her beloved town and down the imaginative avenues within the neighborhoods of her heart and mind." Though the pursuit of happiness for a writer is a tough journey, the author convinces readers that chasing the dream is what life is all about. Percy inspires and motivates. She also makes the right turns, hops on the literary paths before her and finds clarity and satisfaction as a writer. Always sharing what she learns, the end of the book is filled with pages of helpful links for other writers within her compiled Best Top Ten Lists.
