Editorial Reviews

Review

“Like a Mark Twain behind the wheel, [Murphy] takes us on the road coast to coast and city to city with a voice that’s honest and direct and sometimes even poetic.”
- Bob Ryan, Boston Globe

“Rich [and] insightful.… A well-written story that rarely slows down.”
- Nathan Deuel, Los Angeles Times

“It’s a hoot to ride along with Murphy.”
- Irene Wanner, Seattle Times

The Long Haul is funny and sad and wise, and it shows us the lives of people we depend on.”
- Matthew B. Crawford, author of Shop Class as Soulcraft

“Exquisite.… Murphy can cross class boundaries as smoothly as changing lanes on the highway.… Readers even passingly familiar with the burgeoning literary genre we might call hillbilly elegiacs… will find Murphy’s more nuanced perspective refreshing.”
- Meghan Daum, New York Times Book Review

The Long Haul delivers because it is a survey of a culture fused to a working man’s memoir―and Murphy, smartly, avoids sentiment and lazy comparisons.”
- Jeffery Gleaves, Paris Review

“Like priests, movers shepherd us through life’s transitions; like cowboys, truckers drive the roads we’ll never know. Both see America in ways the rest of us don’t. In The Long Haul, Murphy… bring[s] us into his semi-mythic world.”
- Joshua Rothman, The New Yorker

“An adventure story and… a peek into an occupation whose practitioners we see rolling down the highway.”
- Jim Higgins, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Long Haul beguil[es] readers with wit, wisdom and observations born from decades in transit.”
- Jason Blevins, Denver Post

“Finn Murphy… bring[s] readers along for a rollicking ride through a trucker’s world and [provides] an insider’s eye, pairing it with an involving series of encounters.”
- Midwest Book Review

About the Author

Finn Murphy grew up in Connecticut and now lives in Colorado. He started working as a long-haul trucker in 1980. The Long Haul is his first book.
