About the Author

Finn Murphy grew up in Connecticut and now lives in Colorado. He started working as a long-haul trucker in 1980. The Long Haul is his first book.


"A rare, fascinating glimpse into the lives of big-rig pilots and the people they move... The Long Haul beguil[es] readers with wit, wisdom and observations born from decades in transit." -- Jason Blevins - Denver Post "Finn Murphy . . . bring[s] readers along for a rollicking ride through a trucker's world and [provides] an insider's eye, pairing it with an involving series of encounters." -- The Midwest Book Review "There's nothing semi about Finn Murphy's trucking tales of The Long Haul." -- Sloane Crosley - Vanity Fair "A veteran driver's informative, humorous and beautifully detailed memoir. . . . It's a hoot to ride along with Murphy." -- Irene Wanner - The Seattle Times "The Long Haul delivers because it is a survey of a culture fused to a working man's memoir-and Murphy, smartly, avoids sentiment and lazy comparisons." -- Jeffery Gleaves - The Paris Review "It's [Murphy's] rich perspective as a mover that makes this story of trucking life so insightful. . . . A well-written story that rarely slows down." -- Nathan Deuel - Los Angeles Times "Like priests, movers shepherd us through life's transitions; like cowboys, truckers drive the roads we'll never know. Both see America in ways the rest of us don't. In The Long Haul, Murphy . . . bring[s] us into his semi-mythic world." -- Joshua Rothman - The New Yorker "The Long Haul can be almost shamefully enjoyable, allowing readers to have their fix of `fabulous-life-of' porn and class outrage, too. . . . [T]he stories Murphy tells . . . my goodness, how astonishing they are, and how moving, and how funny." -- Jennifer Senior - New York Times Book Review
