Guide to literary road trips across America


We enjoyed this literary journey infographic. The Fear and Loathing trip is actually an easy drive if you aren’t behaving like Hunter S Thompson.  Bill Bryson made a long journey considering he was in a pokey little car.

Not everyone will be familiar with F Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald’s Cruise of the Rolling Junk trip. It was made three months after they were married in a dilapidated car. It was a hapless trip of comedy, despair and danger, and the old car is a key character in their adventures. Zelda was born in Montgomery, Alabama, which was their destination.
