“Travel is little beds and cramped bathrooms. It’s old television sets and slow Internet connections. Travel is extraordinary conversations with ordinary people. It’s waiters, gas station attendants, and housekeepers becoming the most interesting people in the world. It’s churches that are compelling enough to enter. It’s McDonald’s being a luxury.
– Nick Miller, author of Isn’t It Pretty To Think So?
Isn’t It Pretty To Think is Nick Miller’s debut novel, a coming-of-age contemporary novel set in America. It follows the protagonist Jake Reed as he quits his Social Media Manager job and stays at little hostels and visits small restaurants, before finding himself in West Hollywood. He becomes involved with drugs and sex and eventually spirals out of control.
I chose this particular novel because the way he writes is very relatable, as demonstrated by this quote I’ve chosen.
