Description

"A Huck Finn for our environmentally damaged age, lost on a river, and moving downstream with humane monsters and monstrous humans." -Marlon James, Man Booker Prize-winning author Two fourteen-year-old runaways hell-bent on reaching California end up aboard the Tamzene, a mysterious riverboat that runs on alternative fuel. Piloted by the enigmatic Dr. Seabrook, the Tamzene travels the waterways of a bizarre, fun-house image of the US. This is a satire that questions the sanity of our basic principles, as Gulliver's Travels did for eighteenth-century England. "This eye-popping page turner hits on all levels and will keep you up way past your bedtime . . . A coming of age thriller with imagination, guts, and soul." -EcoLit Books "Two fourteen-year-old boys embark on a cross-country boat trip that becomes a romp through social anthropology in this hilarious, picaresque novel . . . We Are All Crew is a coming-of-age story for the boys, but perhaps, if we can channel Landauer's camouflaged optimism and his biting humor, for America as well." -Tim McLoughlin, author of Heart of the Old Country "Taking on serious subjects-environment, deforestation, global warming, and partisan hypocrisy-while addressing the various social networks, apps, video games, and rock-star super-shows, is a lot to handle. But Bill Landauer rises to the task to create a wonderful read. Just sit back and enjoy." -Rashidah Ismaili, author of Autobiography of the Lower East Side
