"A very funny, very moving novel about being lost and then found . . . I love this book."
--Antonya Nelson, author of Bound

Two strangers meet over the hood of a used car in Texas: Marcus, who is fleeing both his financial and personal failures, and Maria, who after years of dodging her mistakes has returned to her hometown to make amends. One looking forward, the other looking back, they face off over the car they both want. And after knowing each other for less than an hour, they decide to buy it together. All I Have in This World is a different kind of love story about the power of friendship.

"A Springsteenian ode to the promise and heartbreak of the highway." -- The New York Times

"Parker's skillfully rendered story rolls like a restless, unpredictable west Texas river--calm depths here, turbulent shallows there--as Marcus and Maria communicate and lurch toward an imperfect union . . . Which feels a lot like real life." --The Denver Post

"Both poetic and starkly real . . . All I Have in This World charts the emotional and geographic journey of two people trying valiantly to move forward." -- The Raleigh News and Observer

"A sweet, sinuous, and smart love story." -- Washingtonian magazine
