Happy Springtime Bizarros! Eraserhead Press has some awesome new releases headed your way. The first is a book that’s been in the works for a few years and has been having a lot of buzz building around it for its dark humor. DRUNK DRIVING CHAMPION by Eric Hendrixson.
“Outlandish fun. A descendant of “Cannonball Run” and “It’s a Mad Mad Mad World” with every bit of the manic exuberance.” -GARRETT COOK, Wonderland Book Award winning author of “Time Pimp”
When a hundred drunk drivers line up for a cross-country competition, it will be a race you won’t forget and they won’t remember.
The best drunk drivers in the nation have gathered at the U.S. Capitol for a race to the Pacific Ocean. They have talent. They have ambition. They have breathalyzers in their cars that will shut off the engine if the driver’s blood alcohol content drops below .16. The flag drops at the height of rush hour.
After a fifty-car pileup at the starting line and dozens of major accidents on the streets of D.C., only six cars make it out of the city. Second-string stockcar drivers, German Kung Fu masters, forgotten Soviet sleeper agents, frat boys, an unemployed sommelier, and a washed-up 80s pop star battle it out in this grueling, action-packed race. Facing overwhelming obstacles and outrageous intoxication, the racers battle the police, AA sponsors, each other, and themselves for the grand prize of one million dollars and a free liver transplant.
From the most sardonic voice in modern fiction comes a debaucherous action-comedy in the form of a bizarro “Cannonball Run.”
