Item description for I See By My Outfit by Peter S. Beagle...
In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. articulated his dream, JFK was assassinated, and zip codes were first introduced to the US. The world was monumentally changing and changing fast. But in the eyes of future fantasy author Peter Beagle and his best friend Phil, it wasn't changing fast enough. For these two twenty-something beatnik Jews from the Bronx, change was something you chased after night and day across the country on the trembling seat of a motor scooter.

Reviews - What do customers think about I See By My Outfit?
Sweet and charming Aug 24, 2008
This is one of the most charming books I've read in ages. Two fuzzy-faced little guys, two dorky motor scooters, one mission: New York to California in 1965. The way Peter S. Beagle writes, it's easy to see why everyone he and his friend Phil encounter wants to adopt them. He is kind, witty, and genuine. There's no attempt to be hip (how hip can you pretend to be on a motor scooter?) He not only observes the physical and emotional landscape, he also describes what he sees with such freshness that it took my breath away.
makes me want to travel Apr 11, 2008
I See By My Outfit is an autobiographical story of a cross-country trip with a friend, completely unlike anything else Beagle has written. Don't expect unicorns. But this is still a great story, and definitely worth reading, even if you normally only stick to fantasy.
