Almost Ice Road Truckers, except for the tulip bulbs… “So here’s the plan. I’m going to train to drive a truck and go long-haul. I can get paid and maybe write a book at the same time. What do you reckon?” “Go for it Mum, how bad can it be?” This is the tale of what happens when a middle-aged mum from England decides to actually drive 18-wheelers across North America instead of just dreaming about it. From early training (when it becomes apparent that negotiating 18 wheels and 13 gears involves slightly more than just learning how to climb in) this rookie overcomes self-doubt, infuriating companions and inconsiderate weather to become a real trucker. She learns how to hit a moose correctly and how to be hijacked. She is almost arrested in Baltimore Docks and survives a terrifying winter tour of The Rockies. Nothing goes well, but that’s why there’s a book. Trucking in English began as a blog from the cab and became a popular podcast before taking book form. It is part of Carolyn’s ‘Armchair Emigration’ series.

He gives little thought to the approaching holidays. That changes however, when he is befriended by Ardella Calder, an elderly customer on his paper route. During a visit, the woman shows Jesse her Christmas Tin. Inside it are gifts from her most memorable Christmases. As she tells Jesse the stories behind the gifts, he slowly comes around. But just when things are looking up, the Macleans receive a telegram with dire news about Jesse’s father. It is during this time that Ardella tells Jesse a final story, a poignant, war time holiday story. A story to guide Jesse through his grief and show him that sometimes faith and hope can bring light to even the darkest of places.

Sisypuss, a feline optimist and true believer in luck (though most of his is rotten), reminisces about the homeless journey through truths and lies, danger and safety, love and enmity, made with his brother Bob and an odd assortment of characters, animal and human met along the way.
Three paws in the grave, Sisypuss interweaves memories and his current life as Booley’s cat companion with Booley’s seriocomic troubles with drugs (he enrolls in clinical trials as a work alternative), unfaithful women, and poetry editors.
Sisypuss tells how, among other things, he and his brother survive an animal shelter, a research lab which wrecks their health, the death of a loved guardian, a godforsaken wood where his try at love with a feral heartbreaker leaves him singing the castrato blues, and finally the overwhelming event leading him to Booley and safety.
Sisypuss:Memoirs of a Vagabond Cat has received 18 5-stars out of 21 reviews.
