Editorial Reviews


“[Sullivan] is brilliant at capturing the moods and moments of an American family road trip…Cross Country is delightful as history, but it's the tender portrait of a family driving home together, enjoying their time just the four of them, that resonates on closing the book.” ―New York Times Book Review

“Sullivan writes with precision, humor and empathy, and his own voice carrying us along.” ―Oregonian

“[A] sprawling, zigzagging, history-drenched memoir.” ―Boston Globe

“[An] entertaining, eclectic and eccentric memoir.” ―Cleveland Plain Dealer

“[Sullivan] channels Walt Whitman's sense of wonder.” ―Washington Times

“[Sullivan] could be the uncrowned king of road tripping.” ―Seattle Post Intelligencer

“Sullivan is sensitive, witty and well-read, which is why it's so much fun to have him along for the ride.” ―USA Today

“Sullivan is fascinating...he's in a league with Bill Bryson, a writer who deftly mixes humor and knowledge.” ―Fort Worth Star Telegram

Cross Country is, by turns, grand, timely, intriguing...fascinating.” ―LA Times Book Review
