by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Introduction by Julian Evans

Foreword by Paul Theroux

In an early series of journalistic pieces for an American magazine, Motor, F. Scott Fitzgerald described a journey he took with his wife Zelda from Connecticut to Alabama in a clapped-out automobile which he called the ‘Rolling Junk’. It is a piece
of writing whose style, in free-ranging alternation of fact and fiction, has been compared with Jerome K. Jerome’s Three Men in a Boat.

This book collects together the articles as one text, illustrated with the original illustrations of Fitzgerald, Zelda and the ‘Junk’. It features a foreword by acclaimed American travel writer Paul Theroux and a critical introduction by Julian Evans, who has written and broadcast about Fitzgerald’s life and work for the Guardian and BBC Radio 3, among others.
