Reviews

High-spirited... hilarious * Observer *
Hilarious... he can be suave, sarcastic and very funny... not your typical travel writer * Sunday Telegraph *
Funny as this wonderful book is, it is also a serious indictment of the American way of life and the direction in which it is going... he is genuinely shocked, as we are, by the statistics of affluence, poverty, crime and culture that he drops in hither and thither * Irish Times *
A very funny performance, littered with wonderful lines and memorable images * Literary Review *
