Travels with Charley: In Search of America
Penguin, 1997 - Počet stran: 210
In September 1960, John Steinbeck and his poodle, Charley, embarked on a journey across America. A picaresque tale, this chronicle of their trip meanders along scenic backroads and speeds along anonymous superhighways, moving from small towns to growing cities to glorious wilderness oases. Travels with Charley is animated by Steinbeck's attention to the specific details of the natural world and his sense of how the lives of people are intimately connected to the rhythms of nature - to weather, geography, the cycles of the seasons. His keen ear for the transactions among people is evident, too, as he records the interests and obsessions that preoccupy the Americans he encounters along the way.

I've never read so much wisdom packed into so few pages. John Steinbeck inspired me to be a better man nearly once per page and his observations are en pointe. Charley is a lovable mutt and the good ol' US of A is a lovable place. Přečíst celou recenzi
