"Buoyant humor...richly complex friendships and romantic relationships...moments that stir real emotion." (Booklife) Setting off on a 3-year journey across America and Europe, free-spirited "good girl," Fay Faron, shakes off her conservative upbringing as she navigates her way through the changing world of the 1970s, as she faces assault, poverty, punishing jobs, betrayal, loss, and romance. Powering through a series of revenge plagues rained down from The Almighty-hey, she is breaking all the rules, after all-Fay must learn to recalibrate her conservative group-think or abandon her road-trip-as-a-lifestyle existence and retreat to the soul-crushing community from which she escaped. Part historical snapshot, part travelogue and part confessional, this laugh-out-loud memoir is the story of every woman who has pondered the road not taken or grappled with the guilt of not being able to live up to rules she didn't make.

Autorenporträt
Fay Faron lived 25 years in San Francisco. The sinking of her Sausalito houseboat in 1982 birthed a new business, The Rat Dog Dick Detective Agency, when she tasked herself with finding the "Breatharian" renter who lived in her boat for the two years prior. Faron's advice column, "Ask Rat Dog" was syndicated by King Features in 1992, appearing in over 60 newspapers including The Chicago Sun Time, The Dallas Morning News and The San Jose Mercury News. She has appeared on Oprah Winfrey, Larry King Live, and 20/20, and her cases have been profiled in People magazine, Vanity Fair, U.S.A. Today and in Edgar award-winning Jack Olsen's true crime, Hastened to the Grave. In 2001, Fay moved to New Orleans, settling in historic Algiers Point, directly across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter. In 2012, the City Council named her, "Ferrygodmother of New Orleans," for saving the Canal Street ferry, and in 2019, she was awarded a Marquis Who's Who's Lifetime Achievement Award for her investigative career. Today, Fay spends her time writing, traveling, and tooling around on "Hog," her Honda Passport 50cc scooter. Her family consists of her long-time California friends who visit on a regular basis, along with the New Orleans ones who feel free to enter her home at will. Her roommates are a border collie mix, Beauregard Napoleon, and a noisy black cat, Mary Puddin' Bells.
