Two Summers: Nixon and Trump by Greyhound Bus

'Tim Albert’s account of his two Greyhound bus odysseys across America, 50 years apart, is a warm, funny and observant take on the state of the States. The distance in time marks not just a changed country but a changed narrator...' - review by Alice Allan, read more

In 1969 I took a 12,000 mile road trip around the US on Greyhound Buses. In 2019, half a century later, I went back on the buses again.

 

My latest book, Two Summers: Nixon and Trump by Greyhound Bus, tells the stories of those two trips and describes how half a century has changed bus travel, the United States and me. It is a story of abandoned landmarks, rampant technology, clashing cultures - and individal acts of hospitality and kindness.

'Learnt about America and Americans ... Howled with laughter' - Melanie Denning

 

'The author gets better with age. Shame can't be said for the States'.
