ALICIA REBENSDORF was working in a dead end job with no relief in sight. So she decided to quit and take a classic American road trip. But this was a road trip with a difference. Alicia traveled across America and visited the sites where various movies and TV shows were filmed “to confront and debunk the images they fostered in me.” So she traveled from Snoqualimine, Washington (“Twin Peaks”), into Wyoming (“Close Encounters”) through North Dakota (“Fargo”) and even over to Boston (“Cheers”, “Good Will Hunting”). Oh, and along the way 9/11 happened. Her no holds barred account of this woozy trip filled with horny strangers, sleazy dives and hard drinking makes CHICK FLICK ROAD KILL: A BEHIND THE SCENES ODYSSEY INTO MOVIE-MADE AMERICA some of the most original and enjoyable writing of 2007.
