"In the summer of 2003, Gabriel Boyer toured America in a 1971 VW
Minibus with a woman named Jill. The plan was to perform plays in the
bedrooms of strangers from Boston to New Orleans to LA to Seattle and
back again - casting these strangers and their friends in an impromptu
performance as a deranged neurosurgeon, say, or in an anarchist
musical. The plan did not go according to plan.
This book is a journey into the America of a decade ago, and the
mind of a single neurotic man and a single unfortunate love affair that
never went anywhere even though it went all over America. It was a
summer that began beautifully, but what could have been perfect was
destined to end in tears. Welcome to Weltschmerz."
