Introduction

The Leisure Seeker is a sweet natured travelogue that’s about the end of the road in more ways than one….The Dangerous Book for Seniors!”
—Bob Morris, author of Assisted Loving< ?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


A sort of Easy Rider meets The Notebook, Michael Zadoorian’s poignant, funny, vibrant, and unforgettable novel, The Leisure Seeker, is a story of two seniors who escape from their retirement home and embark upon a hilarious and touching end-of-life road trip. Here is a story that will appeal to a wide range of readers: from retiring Baby Boomers to fans of Mitch Albom, Tom Perotta, David Sedaris, Nick Hornby, and Nicholas Sparks. In fact, the Detroit Free Press says, “I would recommend Michael Zadoorian’s The Leisure Seeker to almost anyone.”

What an adventure! At times funny, others heartwarming, and sometimes sad but never maudlin. Eady, fun read.

 
  "Great Read"by foertsch (see profile) 07/01/10

Very interesting book. A husband and wife embark on a last vacation. They are both in their 80's and are both sick. Very well written and it really makes you think about life.
