The Great American Bus Ride

By Irma Kurtz

After more than thirty years as an expatriate, Irma Kurtz gave in to her growing curiosity about her American roots and set off on a grand adventure to explore ‘the most baffling of all places’ – by Greyhound bus. Taking only the barest necessitites for travel, she entered the vast network of America’s bus routes and a seething, fleeting world of brief encounters and changing landscapes.
