A New York Times BestsellerMeet Smithson Smithy Ide, an overweight, friendless, chain-smoking, forty-three-year-old drunk who works as a quality control inspector at a toy-action-figure factory in Rhode Island. By all accounts, including his own, Smithy's a loser. But when his life of quiet desperation is brutally interrupted by tragedy, Smithy stumbles across his old Raleigh bicycle and impulsively sets off on an epic journey that might give him one last chance to become the person always wanted to be.

I selected this book off the shelf due to the title and cover. I didn't expect to like it so much! This was a light and insightful book about a fellow with little direction who finds his way. I thought it was great!
