The Man Who Travelled on Motorways

The Man Who Travelled on Motorways

A cult classic by an award-winning novelist, The Man Who Travelled on Motorways is the first novel to exploit the mystique of motorway travel – the realities, unrealities and fantasies that take over the mind of the long-distance driver.

The night drives between Manchester and London are long and dull, even though our narrator whiles away the hours reminiscing about his life – the motorway service stations, the pubs and hotels, the mills and moorlands that punctuate his journeys . . .

But then things start to change: nothing is what it appears to be; no actions are innocent.

As the secret life of his imagination begins to take on a nightmarish power of its own, so the objective world begins to sift through his fingers like a handful of dust.

‘A novel that blurs the boundaries between fantasy and illusion, amusing and terrifying by turns as it considers the impact of motorway travel on the modern psyche’ – Morning Star
