Meet Ulysses McHugh, the typical twenty-something guy wondering where he's going in life and how he's going to get there. Is a purple minivan his best means of travel? He's got his two best friends, a good-paying job, a hopeless infatuation with a nameless beauty from the train station, and a rock in his pocket. So on a long, event-filled journey Ulysses goes to discover who he is and who he wants to be. Along for the ride are his friends, Jonathan (please don't call him Johnny), and Flip. The three embark on a road trip to crash a Thanksgiving dinner 1,200 miles away, which none of them will ever forget. Ulysses will travel the country, escape ravenous Minnesota Vikings, battle man-hating lesbians, and pine for true love in this all-too-relatable story of the something simple everyone wants-happiness.
