Thumbs Up - Over the Hill and on the Road takes the reader on a hitchhiking adventure across southern England where we follow Tom, who has hit the road after a stress meltdown. Thumbs Up is a light-hearted road-movie where we meet the drivers who are kind enough to stop for our elderly hitchhiker. They share their stories - their work, their families, their loves and losses, their hopes and dreams. You have in your hand a playful ramble, a collection of authentic real-life stories, blended with images and reflections from the world of hitchhiking, past and present. As a road-movie documentary and biographical narrative Thumbs Up attempts to portray events as they happened in real life. But as the book points out, things are not always as they seem. As our tale unfolds notions of time, past and future dissolve and we see how our lives are intertwined in unforeseen and uncanny ways. You are invited to come with us on a journey where hitchhiking takes us into the magical space of the present moment. Do join us.
