Rolling sculpture, symbol of freedom and power, a defining rite of passage, the autombile has forever changed the shape of our world. In celebration of the 100th year of the American car industry, the automotive editor of Good Morning American has compiled a collection of writings by such literate and humorous car enthusiasts as Jack Kerouac, Peter Egan, Jim Harrison, Calvin Trillin, Joyce Carol Oates, Dave Barry, and P.J. O'Rourke.

Review:

An anthology of road trip writing, Lindamood's collection includes well-known writers like Dave Barry, Calvin Trillen, S. J. Perelman, and Ernest Hemingway, plus 30 more, all rambling, philosophizing, riffing and narrating on the American pasttime of driving. From Hunter Thompson's desert drag race ravings to Allen Ginsberg's non-driver's plaint about pollution and the end of the world, you get to see the ongoing automotive love affair through the eyes of writers who know the road.
