"Like a Coen Brothers film by way of Roz Chast." -Publishers Weekly
In Moon Boots, cartoonist Lorenz Peters uses gentle humour and expressive lines to explore the lifestyle of a travelling musician-and discovers that sometimes, home is the open road and family is the people you meet along the way.
When Lester LaFleur's relationship is upended by a breakup with his girlfriend, he decides to leave the city for good. With his guitar on his back and cowboy boots on his feet, Lester heads west across Canada, playing his hurtin' songs in empty taverns and to anyone who cares to listen. As Lester travels across the country, he meets others who appreciate his music and share his experiences-and develops a deep kinship with his fellow drifters. As they ride together toward their unknown fortunes, adventures ensue.
