In August 2011, Ramsay Wood meets and talks with Alan Silitoe and wrote : Sillitoe loves maps. He regards them the way some people regard beautiful paintings.

His relation with Russia: In the 1960's, he was celebrated in the Soviet Union as a spokesman for the "oppressed worker". In the West, his first official invitation to visit coming in 1963, which he recorded as Road to Volgograd (1964). During the 1960's he traveled to Russia and the eastern bloc satellite states on six more occasions. He was still treated as an unalloyed literary revolutionary, but the communist authorities were in for a surprise. When asked in 1968 to address a Congress of the Soviet Writers' Union, with Brezhnev present, he denounced the abhorrent abuses of human rights they had carelessly allowed him to observe and record.
