Literature & Driving
Driving! Rain? Golf clubs? No! We mean cars! That’s right: literature and driving. George Herbert in a Saab, the windows down. Adam “failed driving test due to causing a crash” Smyth & James “cannot drive” Kidd clamber in a clapped-out old Honda Civic and motor along to Jack Kerouac, Michel Faber, J.G. Ballard, Iris Murdoch, Raymond Carver, and more. Is reading a novel like driving a car? Is it? IS IT?
