Wonderful, fun and inspiring read. The writing is so energetic and creative. The style and class that Stephen Graham expresses through his on-the-road tramp's musings is new to me, not ever quite encountered in anything else I've read. This one is staying in plain sight, to be dipped into again and again, even if just for a few moments' pleasure. Highly recommended.
Stephen Graham (1884 - 15 March 1975) was a British journalist, travel-writer, essayist and novelist. His best-known books recount his travels around pre-revolutionary Russia and his journey to Jerusalem with a group of Russian Christian pilgrims. Most of his works express his sympathy for the poor, for agricultural labourers and for tramps, and his distaste for industrialisation.More about Stephen Graham 1884...
