really liked it

Taking its title from a passage in Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, A.G. Mojtabai’s new book, All That Road Going, shares much with its titular antecedent as well as veering far away. Chronicling a cross-country bus trip, All That Road Going, visits softly and fleetingly with the down-and-out and dispossessed Greyhound riders. Mojtabai skillfully brings us along on this long journey and in the eerie flashes of streetlights we find commonalities with fellow passengers, while in the harsh waiting room lights we find alienation. What is so absorbing and heartbreaking about this book is that Mojtabai never assumes an air of condescension toward her subjects; rather she locates and explores that which binds all of us together.--Brita
