"Mike Farrell's gripping and often hilarious book-tour memoir provides a framework for grassroots civic engagement. In May 2008-shortly after being named by the Los Angeles Times as a "Person of the Year"-Mike Farrell drove himself across the country on a book tour like no other. Networking with political groups (and friends like Joseph Wilson and Valerie Plame), Farrell redefined the very concepts of book touring and "promotion" through a progressive lens. Departing his hometown of Los Angeles with a trusty rental car-a Prius he quickly nicknamed "Mule"-as his only companion, Mike provides here a funny and fascinating account of his road trip across the country and back. In addition to his (and occasionally Mule's) musings are statements from some of the political groups that cosponsored his tour, including Death Penalty Focus, the ACLU, Greenpeace, Human Rights Watch, and many more."-- Provided by publisher.
