Tales of Scott and Zelda roadtripping, finally back in print In an early series of journalistic pieces for Motor magazine, F. Scott Fitzgerald described a journey he took with his wife Zelda from Connecticut to Alabama in a clapped out automobile which he called the "Rolling Junk." It is a piece of writing whose style, in free-ranging alternation of fact and fiction, has been compared to Jerome K. Jerome's Three Men in a Boat. This book collects together the articles as one text, illustrated with the original illustrations of Fitzgerald, Zelda, and the "Junk."

Paul Theroux is an award-winning travel writer and author whose books include Dark Star Safari, A Dead Hand, and Hotel Honolulu.

Review:

"As an entertaining diversion, [The Cruise of Rolling] Junk hits the mark...[it] is a rediscovered gem." —The Rumpus
