12,000 Miles in the Nick of Time

A Semi-Dysfunctional Family Circumnavigates the Globe

Mark Jacobson


List Price: 13.00*
* Individual store prices may vary.


A family comedy reminiscent of The Osbournes, Jacobson's odyssey is also a wider journey. It is a story about parenting that stretches across generations, an expedition into the minds of five family members as they make their way through a succession of cramped cars, 17-hour train rides, seemingly endless walks through teeming metropolises--and one more bowl of curry.
