Book: Ashes by Alvaro Ortiz

Polly, Moho, and Piter haven’t seen each other in years. Maybe for good reasons. But to help their dead friend reach his final resting place, they’ve piled into a car for a long and surreal road trip–aided only by a map marked with a mysterious ‘x’…and an ex-circus monkey. While our heroes wrestle with the ghosts of their past, up ahead are rusting ships, banjo-playing bounty hunters, plenty of alcohol, awkward silences, shocking violence, and surprising lessons in the history of cremation.
