Meet author Doug 'Ten' Rose. He's my guest Saturday April 12th. We'll be chatting about his book, Fearless Puppy on American Road.
About the book:
Why are so many people running away from things that aren’t chasing them? Travel through Fearless Puppy on American Road with our 15 year old hitchhiking runaway as he escapes a life of drug dealing in Brooklyn. This trip offers solid clues about how to leave excess fears in the dust. Follow the author’s outrageous voyage through every stupid mistake (and most of the saving grace) that humanity has to offer. Laugh at our intrepid lunatic’s ability to land on his feet in spite of himself. You will meet: a man who is his own uncle; specialists in smoke, mirrors, and invisibility; Buddhist wisdom, Christian ethics, Jewish ritual; family values, heavenly Hell’s Angels, phony preachers, domestic violence, domestic solutions, racist killers in America, Canadian race wars; Native American wise men, angelic witches, benevolent heroin addicts, magical birds, martial artists battling neo-Nazis, and the modern day Robin Hood. All manner of sinners and saints travel through this amazing true story that reads like a fantasy. If you put the writings of Kerouac, Chopra, Hunter S. Thompson, Castaneda, Black Elk, Will Rogers, Gandhi, and a clown in a blender with 500 lbs. of additional hallucinogens and a time machine, you would have the writings of Doug Rose.
About the author:
Doug “Ten” Rose has metaphorically worn stripes and plaid all his life. He has thirty years experience raising funds for various causes under some very adverse personal circumstances. He has invented and directed charity projects involving rock stars, pro sports teams, governors, and senators - projects which raised awareness and large sums of money for others, often while he remained homeless himself and panhandled for food money in the streets.
