The members of a oncepopular rock 'n' roll band make a picaresque odyssey across America, from California to Virginia, into a series of adventures and experiences amidst a vacuous, disposable popular culture of diners, clubs, colleges, and hotels. Original.

Blackwell North Amer
Camden Joy tells the picaresque tale of an American rock 'n roll band as they travel below both the Mason-Dixon Line and the cultural radar in early 1991. As the Persian Gulf War escalates in the background, we follow the four members (including a drummer who, like the author, is named Camden Joy) on solo and group adventures amid the vacuous American landscape, of diners, clubs, colleges, and hotels. Boy Island is at once a eulogy for the formerly limitless possibilities of the American road and, ultimately, a meditation on the redemptive power of music and friendship.
