New Video Recording: Lucky Ride from Memoir to Novel plus an Excerpt

My thanks to the Editors!

Here is some background for this scene:

Flash, the narrator of  Lucky Ride, hitchhikes across the country in 1973 to escape his unraveling marriage. He stops to visit a friend he met while stationed on Adak in the desolate Aleutian Islands. Diane had been married to a lifer and she eventually left the island with Phil, one of Flash’s cubemates. When Flash called her from a truck stop she sounded eager to see him and invited him to a birthday party. She also mentioned her divorce and Flash is hoping their reunion will have romantic implications.
