MEDIA REVIEWS
A vivid, authentic and often humorous picture of life within this otherworldly corridor . . . an original and substantial work.--New York Times Book Review
A fascinating account of the best known landmark in the Garden State--the New Jersey Turnpike. . . . If there is anyone out there who believes that a book on a turnpike will be dull and uninspiring, guess again.--Christian Science Monitor
An off-beat look at all facets of Turnpike life: the building of New Jersey's most famous road; its toll collectors; rest areas; the people with the turnpike as a neighbor; and more.--The Courier-Post
Filled with interesting historical information about the roadway, explaining in comic detail the paramilitary mentality of the Turnpike Authority.--Boston Globe
An enthusiastic exploration of the eminently user-unfriendly Turnpike's impact on suburban life, graffiti, mass transit, music, art, poetry, folklore, truck-stop sex--all human life as we know it.--New Jersey Monthly
