Overview
This item is non-returnable

Robert Johnson supposedly became a guitar virtuoso after a devil’s deal at the Mississippi crossroads. Young Bob Dylan was a vagabond who spread his own mythologies from Hibbing, Minnesota to Greenwich Village and beyond. Bruce Springsteen grew up in a blue-collar borough of New Jersey but desired something more than runaway American dreams. Cross/Roads and (Re)Mappings follows a young, drifting musician as she travels across the United States searching for a place that feels like a home. Flashbacks trace the dissolution of a family and the wake of wreckage left from growing up with a mother diagnosed with schizophrenia, major depression, and bipolar disorder; attempting to fill a father’s absence; and feeling disconnected from the past and alone in a country that often feels like it’s swallowing you whole. This fusion of poetry and nonfiction chronicles a collision of love and resentment, and the result is as much of a long thank-you note to Tharp’s influences as it is a semi-memoir.

About the Author: Adriane Tharp is a Presidential Scholar in the Arts, YoungArts finalist, and Scholastic Art & Writing alumna. She is a recent graduate of the Alabama School of Fine Arts and will study a blend of writing, music, and film at Wesleyan University. Cross/Roads and (Re)Mappings is her first book.
