Heartbroken after a long, painful love affair, a man drives a haulage lorry from England to France. Travelling with him is a secret passenger – his daughter. Twenty-something, unkempt, off the rails.
With a week on the road together, father and daughter must restore themselves and each other, and repair a relationship at once fiercely loving and deeply scarred.
As they journey south, down the motorways, through the service stations, a devastating picture reveals itself: a story of grief, of shame, and of love in all its complex, dark and glorious manifestations.
Praise for Conor O’Callaghan:
As fine as it is frightening.
An original story, brilliantly told. . . extraordinary, low-key and pitch-perfect.
This one will stay with you like your shadow, as hard to shake off and as impossible to pin down.
Strange, beautiful and quietly terrifying.
