Product Overview

Martha and Nina are under-employed, over-educated slackers who are wasting their twenty-something lives while serving drinks at a dive bar in Cleveland. Martha''s escapes are smoking too much, drinking, and reading classic literature. Nina''s distractions come in the form of married men. In a shared moment of self-realization, they quit their jobs and set out on a road trip. Their journey in time takes a literary turn that blurs fantasy and reality. Nina''s destiny is guided by Cervantes'' Don Quixote while Martha, with less grandiose aspirations, finds herself in the footsteps of Jane Austen''s Emma Woodhouse. A Body at Rest was a competition semi-finalist in the 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award.
