For fans of adventure, travel, and memoirs, Travels with Vamper: A Graybeard’s Journey by George Critchlow contains amazing surprises, great entertainment and a rare injection of humor in the narrative that will compel readers to keep on turning the pages. After four decades of teaching law and lawyering, the author gets a deal that literally sets him financially free, and he embarks on the journey of a lifetime across the country, to everyone’s astonishment, including friends and his wife. Right off the bat he warns that: “I also wanted to drive, just drive. Drive in a mercurial way, drive intuitively, drive the country's back roads through deserts and mountains — away from the airports, hotels and conference rooms that had insulated my professional travel for decades.” But this book isn’t just about someone driving across the country; the journey takes on surprising perspectives and plunges the reader into the heart of a powerful reflection on the American conundrum.
Travels with Vamper: A Graybeard's Journey offers readers a fresh perspective on travel, putting them into contact with a diversity of people, confronting them with the political and social issues that affect American life. It is set against the backdrop of the socio-political environment, at a time when Donald Trump was pushing on through the Republican primaries and Sanders was making promises of free college education for all. The reader accompanies the traveler as he faces physical challenges while casting a critical look at events unfolding before him. George Critchlow has an inimitable style of writing and his narrative voice, strong and ebullient, is loaded with humor, and readers will appreciate the satire that comes across strongly most of the time. Here is a book that tells a story, but that also forces the reader to laugh and think at the same time. Apart from the beauty of the prose and the vivid setting, this memoir is loaded with facts and questions that will excite the minds of readers. Hugely entertaining!
