He has nowhere to go...so he goes there. An alienated young man can see no meaning in life. He doesn't even see the point of getting out of bed in the morning. To escape from his family he decides to set off on a hitchhiking adventure around Europe, and is picked up by a friendly lorry driver with an unusual interest in philosophy. The journey takes him through a violent and Kafkaesque nightmare to a destination that changes his life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Thrilling in every respect, but also hypnotic, fast-moving and intellectually challenging . . . Quite staggeringly good." * Daily Mail *
"It entertains us while it reflects with great profundity on the human condition . . . one of the best novelists around." -- Piers Paul Read * Spectator *
"Nicolson describes it as 'a thriller about the meaning of life' and that's pretty accurate . . . A genuinely thought-provoking read." * Mail on Sunday *
"Very good . . . Kafka lurks in the background through all this but Nicholson successfully contrives to supplant that author's fatalism with a hard-won optimism concerning how to remain human amid inhumanity." * The Times *
"A pacy, tense and often funny read." * Daily Telegraph *
