Greer's storytelling style is unique and his characters are likeable, but I never felt like I could fully connect with it all, but maybe that is on purpose.

Road Trip with Mom
Review of the Amazon Original Stories audiobook (April 16, 2024) released simultaneously with the Audible Originals audiobook.

Born to southern parents, I am a suburban Maryland boy who now lives in San Francisco. My experience of America is limited to ’80s malls, pickled watermelon rind, Broadway shows, and fog; it is akin to owning only volume J–K of an encyclopedia.


This is a short memoir about a road trip from when the author travelled home to San Francisco from a mentoring job in Kansas and his mother asked to join him on the journey. Greer arranges for stays in out of the way kitschy tourist places where they sleep in anything from tents to teepees. Along the way they visit sites such as the Grand Canyon. Greer's mother is up for all of it including indulging her son's penchant for occasionally wearing a fried egg costume. Overall a lovely tale of mother and son bonding.

The Kindle edition includes several selfie photos taken along the journey.

A bit light for my pre-election mood at present.

To read Andrew Sean Greer who is funny and witty and has the most wonderful metaphors restores my love of fiction. I put pages of quotes in my commonplace book. In telling the story of a self-effacing, lovable, heartbroken mid-list novelist named Arthur Less and his journey around the world, I fell in love with the protagonist and the story and even the hardest heart softens with the affection and smiles in this story. Insightful, funny, endearing, the perfect antidote to the times we live in.
