The Driveway Diaries: A Dirt Road Almanac by Tim Brookes

While working on a doomed book about commuting, Tim Brookes developed an odd affection for dirt roads. This led him to study his own driveway, a tiny dirt road, a masterpiece of inconvenience, a many-mooded borderlands in the balance of power between order and chaos. The result: The Driveway Diaries, a well-balanced mix of poignant and humorous observations about nature, the seasons and family life.

Tim Brookes is the author of A Hell of a Place to Lose a Cow, which was selected as one of the top travel books of the year by The New York Times and Booklist. He has lived for two decades in Vermont, where he teaches and writes.
