Description de l’éditeur
When Elliott — a confused young man in search of the meaning of life — drove down the highway early one morning, he unwittingly began an adventure as personally significant and life-changing as Arthur Dent’s; albeit sans earth’s annihilation or the need to hitchhike around the galaxy.
Early in his trip, Elliott meets Gus, a curious old man with a dusty pack over his shoulder, an iPod full of Beatles tunes in his pocket, and — as Elliott soon learns — an unbelievable assertion he's someone, or something, beyond belief.
As they travel about the country, Gus teaches Elliott important lessons about history, religion, philosophy, grizzly bears and coffee. In due course, a warm and humorous bond develops between the two men as Elliott and Gus swap repartee, personal histories and existential observations.
An often laugh out loud, sometimes tears-down-the-cheek, irreverent and thoroughly, thought-provoking read, GUS ~ Elliott's Story, introduces the reader to unimagined ways of thinking about life . . . and other humdrum things.
And why it all matters.
