"Enormously influential journey of self-discovery permeated by philosophical discussion, and startlingly original and disturbing imagery, based on an autobiographical account of a journey across the USA on a motorbike undertaken with his son in 1968; the shifts between narrative, analogy, and philosophical meditation have prompted several critics to see this work as a latter-day Moby-Dick" (Stringer, 532).
