Sheridan Jobbins è 6 CHARACTERS FREE DOWNLOAD å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB è Sheridan Jobbins CHARACTERS Wish You Were Here î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 'In this moment I am perfect I am free to be whoever I want and all I want to be is a woman in a red spotty dress speeding into her future in a shiny red car'Raw sharply funny and heartfelt Wish You Were Here is a girl's own adventure with bite a hilarious rollercoaster ride that will make you itch to escape the everyday and hit the road with this irresponsible and irresisti. 4 I returned home from a business trip to discover the man I was married to had changed It wasn t a vague thing there was a stranger in my bed When pressed to define his problem he relented saying I just can t stand the thought of sleeping with only one woman for the rest of my life And that was that Well that s interesting Because the book dedication says For my husband like der which Americans would say like duh Husband ehFun read and not like the gushy blubbery Eat Pray Love None of that meditation magic to stop the tears Jobbins is made of stronger stuff although she sheds a few tears here and there and blows her top than once And it IS all about her of course like der as she would have said The reason I read it is because of a couple of people who praised it Mark Colvin whom I loved and Amanda Keller who s a bright funny girl herself Then I googled the author and realised she moves in some interesting circles film maker screenwriter so that was intriguing And she does indeed cross paths with many interesting people some famous first names only but Mark in London is Colvin and some real down home genuine local charactersAfter her husband decides to find himself by looking in different beds she gradually pieces her life back together although they stay married and best friends mostly He is Pig to her Piggy and that s how she always refers to himShe decides she will do a Thelma and Louise sort of and travel across America changing the scenery and refreshing her spirit She hasn t got much money but what the heck Her mother worries but encourages but worries and well she s a mother and so it goes At one point in her travels the author writes Awesome I said on entering the elegant Beaux Art lobby with its old world nymphs and vaulted grandeur It s my mother made of marble and mortar Aunty Sue to the rescue She s mid generation close enough in age to the author that she s a lot of fun while adding an air of stability to the adventure She offers to meet the author on the east coast and drive back with her on the way home Whew that will defray a lot of the costHer family tends to hang on to the exes and an ex brother in law lives in LA so she starts off staying with him LA she describes The city is huge monstrous half the population of Australia living on a dot and everyone s here for glory Wealth beauty brains they re all available for a price Sure that price seems to be your soul but since it s the richest city in America you ll probably get good money for itNow all Jobbins needs to do is find a car and she grabs a classic 1989 red Chevy Camaro for 3600 US just over her Aussie 5000 limit If Aussie readers are not familiar with the Camaro it s a muscle car think hoon think head turner think less than subtle She names it Betty I m not a fan of naming vehicles after women but I do like her red Chevy so I ll forgive her She has a colourful time crossing the country and I enjoyed the whole ride Yes she does a bit of reflective navel gazing and if there were sailors she d do naval gazing as well as she likes the fellas She s a dreadful flirt by which I mean incorrigible not unsuccessful and she was adventurous enough to talk to strangers everywhere and stay in out of the way places mainly because she had no moneyShe hits the Grand Canyon hikes admires the scenery across the country finds people to show us around and generally tells a good story I found it fun but then I ve travelled many of the places she did so it was kind of reminiscing for me I suppose Eventually she ends up on the east coast meets up with Sue gets down to Washington DC but Sue has to return urgently to Australia so it s off to England instead since her flight allowed her another leg on her tripWe learn about her childhood with an alcoholic father and her medical dramas trying to fall pregnant There s enough detail that we understand why she s feeling chaotic but there s so much fun and joy in the trip that it s easy to admire how she s decided to meet life head onAlone her mind starts to wander Driving through the Badlands of middle America I discovered the creative mind is like a cattle dog you have to work it or you ll come home and find it s eaten the couch She s delighted to discover NPR National Public Radio which is a bit like Australia s ABC and SBS Keeps her mind going She stays with old friends makes new friends and one follows her back to the States and he and another new American friend drive back across country with her in a funny awkward Three Amigos fashion She needs them to be able to afford to get back to CaliforniaShe tells a good story says and does things that would drive me nuts if I were one of the fellows she s travelling with but she obviously makes up for it with wit and a good sense of humour They re broke so they camp on a building site in stunning national parks wherever they canLots of funny anecdotes which she s probably been dining out on for years If you re an American you ll recognise your country and if you re an Aussie you ll recognise the traveller In fact if you re English you ll be familiar with her time there and one of her new friends Most enjoyable Thanks to NetGalley and Affirm Press for the preview copy from which
