‘A hilarious book of bad times, bedtimes and benders. It is a kind of cool parody of On the Road.’ New Statesman
No Particular Place to Go (first published in 1981) relates Hugo Williams’s journey across the USA on a three-month poetry-reading tour wherein he also hoped to discover some of the America he had imagined for so long on the strength of its all-consuming popular culture.
‘No Particular Place to Go isn’t a book that you’d take on a visitor’s itinerary of the States . . . But the journey it describes is a potent one . . . It offered a poet’s eye on modern culture, a cool, sideways perspective on its consumers and an enviable traveller’s voice – not just unafraid of meeting the locals but positively keen to jump in and grab whatever was on offer.’ John Walsh, Independent
