Text: English, Italian (translation)From Publishers Weekly:
Three men embark on a picaresque, often hallucinative jaunt from L.A. to the Yucatan peninsula in quest of material for a film, in this absurdist tease of a novel by Italian writer De Carlo ( Macno ). Narrator Dave is the keen young assistant to egocentric Yugoslavian filmmaker Dru Resnik, who privately ruminates on his art. They are joined by thick-necked Hollywood producer Nesbitt, who foots the bills. First they track the elusive Camado, a reputed peyote-eater whose books on drugs and the occult in Mexico may provide the story they need. But an uncanny trail of messages (e.g., "We are watching you") guides them to unexpected locations in hotels, ancient temples, gas stations. En route they pick up amiable women--Mary Ann the cyclist, salesperson Sashy, and notably Elaine, actress and "spiritual girl" who interprets the cryptic messages. The narrative creates a continual air of expectancy, unreeling haphazardly like a home movie, proving finally that the journey's accumulation of images and personal entanglements is the story.
