Henrietta Rose-Innes Reflects on the Magic of the Road Trip

Green LionHenrietta Rose-Innes has shared a lighthearted travel piece she wrote for SA High Times recently.

Rose-Innes latest novel, Green Lion, was released in May, and launched at The Book Lounge with Hedley Twidle, who gave the book a glowing review in the Sunday Times.

Her SA High Times piece is a humorous but insightful look at the magic of youthful holidays – although admittedly in this case it may have been caused by something slightly more sinister:

P and I are big road-trippers. Conditions have changed in the years we’ve been together – starting out, more than a decade ago, we hauled cross-country in a succession of ancient cars that rapidly collapsed into flakes of rust around us. These days, we get where we’re going without a vehicular mishap, and shell out for a B&B when we get there. Things were not always so.
