About the Author

Reviews

"Brian Benson's memoir about riding from the hinterlands of Wisconsin to Portland, Oregon on his bicycle is as poignant as it is gripping, as hilarious as it is wise. Going Somewhere is a tender, sexy, take-it-with-you-everywhere-you-go-until-you've-read-the-last-page beauty of a book."--Cheryl Strayed, New York Times bestselling author of Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

"Irresistible. . . . Let's hope Benson has more travels in mind. He is a gifted writer, an observant human with an eye for the telling detail and how to tell it."--Booklist

"Charming... His travelogue is vibrant and engrossing, with wonderful portraits of Western landscapes and scruffy small towns, Job-like ordeals of gusty headwinds and breakdowns, and piquant portraits of kindly, parental folks who offer the cyclists food and shelter and another of a menacing drifter on a dark road."--Publisher's Weekly
