Slow Road to San Francisco: Across the USA from Ocean to Ocean by David Reynolds

‘What a book! What a joy of a book, plunging you straight away into the very body, bosom and blood of America. David Reynolds takes us on the terrific journey of driving from the Atlantic to the Pacific – from sea to shining sea – with triumphs of wildly diverse observations, both verbal and visual, great and small. … makes me cry with pleasure, enfolding me, as it does, with the sheer magic of being able to be back on the road in America…’ Lucinda Lambton, The Oldie

Feeling locked in by lockdown? Escape into this absorbing account of the author’s 46-day, 3,000-mile drive across 13 states, from the coast of Maryland to San Francisco, following an old two-lane road. Describing people, places and adventures with insight and gentle humour, Reynolds takes the reader deep into another world.
