Aprašymas

The #1 New York Times-bestselling humorist's tribute to car travel is "a ride worth taking, even for readers who don't know an oil pan from a frying pan" (The Washington Times).

From a veteran of both Car and Driver and National Lampoon magazines, this hilarious book chronicles the golden age of the automobile in America--and takes us on a whirlwind tour of the world's most scenic and bumpiest roads in trouble-laden cross-country treks, from a 1978 Florida-to-California escapade in a 1956 special four-door Buick sedan, to a thousand-mile effort across Mexico in the Baja 1000 in 1983, to a journey through Kyrgyzstan in 2006 on the back of a Soviet army surplus six-wheel-drive truck.

For longtime fans of the celebrated humorist, the collection features a host of O'Rourke's classic pieces on driving, including "How to Drive Fast on Drugs While Getting Your Wing-Wang Squeezed and Not Spill Your Drink," about the potential misdeeds one might perform in the front (and back) seat of an automobile; "The Rolling Organ Donors Motorcycle Club," which chronicles a seven-hundred-mile weekend trip through Michigan and Indiana that O'Rourke took on a Harley-Davidson; his brilliant and funny piece from Rolling Stone on NASCAR and its peculiar culture recorded during an alcohol-fueled weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1977; and an hilarious account of a ride from Islamabad to Calcutta in Land Rover's new Discovery Trek.

"Never in neutral, O'Rourke offers laughter on wheels." --Publishers Weekly

"An insightful look not just at the American love affair with cars, but also at one man's changing outlook on life, all of it fast-paced and over the top . . . Even readers who know nothing about cars and motorcycles will appreciate the joy and hilarity of this book." --Booklist
