Description: Arachne Manteia, the heroine of No Fixed Address, is a road rider, a traveling sales rep who drives a classic Mercedes and peddles underwear for a living. From her working class childhood in Vancouver to her comfortable life in Calgary, Arachne refuses to embrace the conventional. Ready to engage whatever adventure fate throws in her path, this rogue character traces dusty roads across the prairies, playing her picaresque hand with all the passion and lack of restraint that such adventuring requires. Like Don Quixote or Moll Flanders, she throws caution to the wind, flings herself into every encounter with a fearless avoidance of commitment. The men who seek to touch her or own her are left in her wake, but through her wanton circulations, Arachne meets her future and her fate, both death and disappearance. She claims them all as part of her never-ending journey, a journey that promises the fulfillment of deferred destination, whether that destination is happiness or grief, love or loss. Always ready to fight and flee, she is the quintessential picara, skillfully reckless, frighteningly unresistible, eager to go to the edge of the mappable world and beyond, driving an uncharted road that will never end. This is a novel that precedes Thelma and Louise, that emulates Justina, and that captures the essence of an unrepentant picara.
