Prose Reading by Ted Conover

Of Ted Conover’s most recent feat of literary journalism, The Routes of Man: Travels in the Paved World, Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation) writes: “Ted Conover is one of the great writers of my generation, and this may be his finest book. Fearless and compassionate, with echoes of Conrad and Kerouac, it explores how the road, once a symbol of limitless possibility, has become a path to annihilation.” Conover is the author of five previous books of literary journalism, including Rolling Nowhere: Riding the Rails with America’s Hoboes and Newjack: Guarding Sing Sing. He is currently distinguished writer in residence in the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute of New York University.
