I chose to read a book that is a collection of forty eight articles written by an established automotive journalist This choice was guided mostly by customer reviews posted on com To say I did not know much about the author Peter Egan is an understatement I had literally never so much as heard his name much less read a single word he has written Now though after reading Side Glances Volume 4 which contains each of the columns he authored for Road and Track magazine between 2002 and 2006 as well as some of the feature work he did for the magazine it s safe to say that the man has become a source of inspiration and an example of my career intentions personified I don t think envy is too strong a word to describe my feelings toward the lifestyle of Peter Egan The I read of his work the I realized we share a good deal of common interests He for example is an avid car enthusiast probably to a fault He like me is a sailor and a motorcyclist BIKEEXIF nd He is a combat veteran who served in Vietnam Egan 2006 p a pilot a musician Egan 2013 and a gifted writer whose talent whether God given or hewn out as a result of great effort has earned him a massive readershipEgan grew up in Elroy Wisconsin Egan 2006 p 9 where as a child found that he was especially attracted to the smooth elegant line of the 50 s era Jaguars Egan 2006 p 99 Later he was drafted into the Army after leaving college where he was pursuing journalism before switching his major and eventually dropping out altogetherHe went to basic training at Fort Campbell Kentucky in 1969 Egan 2006 p 182 After serving in Vietnam he returned home in 1970 Egan Aug2013 to marry and work through most of the seventies as an automotive mechanic Egan 2006 p43 the Egan began writing as a freelancer and was offered a staff position by Cycle World magazine in 1977 after submitting the story of how he and his wife rode across America traveling on a motorcycle Egan 2013 Three years later in 1980 Egan moved to California with his wife who makes regular appearances as a character in his columns and began writing for Road and Track Magazine as well Egan 2006 p199 He has spent the last 30 plus years writing for both magazines and now lives in rural Wisconsin and as of August 2013 he has retired to pursue other interests Egan 2013 Egan s lifelong infatuation with cars and motorcycles along with his background in hands on work with his personal projects ualify him to write with authority regarding these topics I gathered from reading his columns that Egan is an avid reader and even reviews books for Road and Track magazineEgan 2006 p 82 He also gets out in the shop and gains practical knowledge about the machines he works on through hands on labor Most of Egan s stories are anecdotal They come from his personal interactions with the characters he deals with day to day I would describe Egan s style of writing a casual and unassuming while remaining literary His writing has an air of poignancy and control that I was not expecting from a motor journalist Egan is certainly not your average car guy dabbling in writing His command of vocabulary is nothing if not impressive that or my lexicon is lacking making me easy to impress Egan has the ability to uncover and describe ironies and he manages at least one really solid simile per article which is something I began looking forward to as I started reading each piece For example when describing the E Type Jaguar he spent three years restoring he had this to say The cockpit is a wonderful place to be and is smells like leather and old wool It s like driving your grandfather s library Egan 2006 p115 This resonates with me as an automotive enthusiast It puts me inside that rare car with its rich woven wool carpet and leather wrapped upholstery Using only two well crafted sentences Egan is able to elicit the sensations he feels within his audienceEgan can also bend words to shape a metaphor that is certainly pointed at an audience of car lovers but is very literate and insightful One case that comes to mind is when he likened the Self Help section of books a Borders bookstore to ever encroaching glaciers on the automotive section p66 I can just see the swelling Self Help section grinding slowly forth into the automotive territory I wasn t able to find a review written over this book aside from those written by customers who had purchased the book and cared enough to leave their positive feedback on com I found Egan s self deprecating and insightful writing utterly relatable There were so many times as I read the book that I found myself laughing aloud at the text or scribbling Yes or HA in the margins The book reads well and is than entertaining it s downright insightful I found that I shared a lot in common with the authorprotagonist and really found myself invested in the stories he was telling I can certainly pencil Egan in on my shortlist of favorite writers nowTo get this book on time to read it and write a report I had to pay an extra shipping cost which cost than the book itself Essentially I paid for this book than twice and I would still consider it a good value for the money Egan s story is an inspirational one for an aspiring motor journalist like me But you don t have to dream of one day becoming a writer like Egan to appreciate his work His articles reached almost six million Road and Track readers in 2013 this doesn t count the work he was doing for Cycle World Road Track 2013I would personally recommend this book to anyone with an interest in cars or motor journalism As an enthusiast I enjoyed this book a great deal but there is depth here than that Egan writes about himself as much as he does about automobiles I found the book to be surprisingly literary and Egan s story of elevating himself from a blue collar background and hopeful freelancer to a position as a staff writer a two premier motor publications with a massive committed readership nothing short of inspirational As I read along I found myself doing uick internet searches for images of the cars and places in his stories that I was unfamiliar with I also kept my dictionary at hand to look up words I didn t know This is not something I generally do while sitting down with a motoring magazine The book was a surprise a very pleasant one Egan s story is one of triumph and success and though I m a little sad he is not going to be producing his Side Glances column any longer I have to wonder if he is just making a little room for the next great motor journalist maybe one from
