Follow Mike (from Halifax) and girlfriend Jodi (a Texan) through the United States on a tour fuelled by deep-fried pickles and pocket-sized fruit pies. This American Drive is the story of the foods they ate, things they saw, places they visited, laws they bent, customs they mocked… and foods they ate.

Mike Holmes is an author and illustrator working in Halifax. He's produced a number of graphic novels and has a weekly comic strip in The Coast, 'True Story'. This American Drive is Holmes's first book.

Mike Holmes latest work, This American Drive, is not just a novel with pretty picuters. Weaving traditional storytelling and elements of the graphic novel with unexpected ease, the book is Holmes's memoir of his road trip from Halifax to his then-girlfriend's parrents' home in Texas. Along the wayhe passes through the America of our imagination - full of fast food joints and rock 'n' roll icons. - Kim Hart MacNeill, This Magazine
