Road Trip America

Iconic Route 66, Chuck Berry, Jack Kerouac, Miles Davis...we have selected four books to entertain and set the scene for something that is, well, just sooooo American!

A novel  about four women who go on a road trip from Wisconsin to Las Vegas. They are pretty much strangers, have bereavement in common, range in age from 20 - 70, and have very different personalities. A belter from Karen McQuestion!

Billy Connolly, music-lover, biker, and scourge of the beige and the bland the world over, has dreamed about taking a trip on the legendary Route 66 since he first heard Chuck Berry belting out one of the greatest rock n roll records of all time. In this book he searches out the real America.

Sharp, stylised, gritty, diverse, dubious, sleazy....Indian Country Noir is an anthology of short stories around Native American culture. 

No road trip planning can be complete without Jack Kerouac, American iconoclast On the Road. The narrative takes place in the late 1940s and is brim full of Americana - the soul of the beat movement, one of the greats of 20th century literature.

A road trip in a classic 1970s Ford, no further description needed!
