Sideways is the story of two friends, Miles and Jack, going away together for the last time to steep themselves in everything that makes it good to be young and single: pinot, putting, and prowling bars. In the week before Jack plans to marry, the pair heads out from Los Angeles to the Santa Ynez wine country. For Jack, the tasting tour is Seven Days to D-Day, his final stretch of freedom. For Miles—who has divorced his wife, is facing an uncertain career, and has lost his passion for living—the trip is a week-long opportunity to evaluate his past, his future, and himself.

A raucous and surprising novel filled with wonderful details about wine, Sideways is also a thought provoking and funny book about men, women, and human relationships.

Quotes & Awards

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A buddy novel in the cinematic vein of Swingers.” 


  • “A buddy novel in the cinematic vein of Swingers…Pickett plays the sex-and-the-single-man angle for all it’s worth here…like Dharma Bums updated with metrosexual panache.”


  • “Skillful work about a friendship between two ultimately likable guys.”

    Kirkus Reviews

    " Better than the movie. Wine anyone? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Morris | 2/19/2014

    " I read the book after watching the movie, still found it hilarious. A nice, easy, summer read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Claire Hessing | 2/17/2014

    " I don't appreciate debauchery enough to enjoy this book. Plus, the two main characters were just jerks to each other the entire time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Erica | 1/31/2014

    " One of those rare occasions when the movie is far better than the book. Unforgivable adverbs...sloppy and repetitive. Jack's got a few more crass & funny lines than in the film, and some scenes are interestingly very different than the film. The film is a very different beast, a work of art made from the flawed clay the book is. "
