A5 Top Pick - Travels with Charley, by John Steinbeck
In 1960, one of America’s most celebrated authors took a long road trip across the United States, accompanied by his now infamous French poodle Charley. This was John Steinbeck's chance to get back in touch with America, to explore the country's true breadth of landscapes and cultures, and to rediscover some of himself along the way. It is an entertaining read, a great insight into the mind of a great American writer, and an interesting view into American life at that time. Steinbeck's travel memoir is one of our top recommendations. Read more about Travels with Charley here.
