Description

When she lands a coveted nonpaying, nonspeaking role in a play going on a European tour, Rachel Shukertwith a brand-new degree in acting from NYU and no moneyfinally scores her big break. And, after a fluke at customs in Vienna, she gets her golden ticket: an unstamped passport, giving her free rein to find herself on a grand tour of Europe. Traveling from Vienna to Zurich to Amsterdam, Rachel bounces through complicated relationships, drunken mishaps, miscommunication, and the reality-adjusting culture shock that every twentysomething faces when sent off to negotiate "the real world"whatever that may be.
