A pampered Long Island princess hits the road in a converted bus with her wilderness-loving husband, travels the country for one year, and brings it all hilariously to life in this offbeat and romantic memoir. Doreen and Tim are married psychiatrists with a twist: She’s a self-proclaimed Long Island princess, grouchy couch potato, and shoe addict. He's an affable, though driven, outdoorsman. When Tim suggests “chucking it all” to travel cross-country in a converted bus, Doreen asks, “Why can’t you be like a normal husband in a midlife crisis and have an affair or buy a Corvette?” But she soon shocks them both, agreeing to set forth with their sixty-pound dog, two querulous cats—and no agenda—in a 340-square-foot bus. Queen of the Road is Doreen’s offbeat and romantic tale about refusing to settle, about choosing the unconventional road with all the misadventures it brings (fire, flood, armed robbery, and finding themselves in a nudist RV park, to name just a few). The marvelous places they visit and delightful people they encounter have a life-changing effect on all the travelers, as Doreen grows to appreciate the simple life, Tim mellows, and even the pets pull together. Best of all, readers get to go along for the ride through forty-seven states in this often hilarious and always entertaining memoir, in which a boisterous marriage of polar opposites becomes stronger than ever.

Eine Manhattan-Prinzessin im Wohnmobil! Doreen und Tim Orion führen eine wunderbare Ehe, auch wenn die beiden unterschiedlicher kaum sein könnten. Bis Tim eine Idee hat: Er will in einem umgebauten Bus durch die USA reisen ... Bis heute weiß Doreen nicht, wie Tim – ein echter Naturliebhaber – sie zu diesem Abenteuer überredet hat. Wahrscheinlich mit einem Trick – wie damals bei ihrem ersten Date. Schon bald jedenfalls sitzt die kapriziöse Shopping-Prinzessin mit Schuhtick in einem zum Camper umgebauten Bus und reist mit ihrem Mann kreuz und quer durch die USA. Mit an Bord: ein Riesenpudel und zwei eigenwillige Katzen. Wie Doreen zwischen Alaska, Tornados und Nudisten-Camps Haltung bewahrt, zur stolzen »Queen of the Road« aufsteigt und vor allem keinen Gattenmord begeht, davon erzählt dieses höchst humorvolle und warmherzige Buch. Eine Amerikareise, so unterhaltsam als stamme sie aus der Feder Bill Brysons.
