Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Heartbroken after a long, painful love affair, a man takes a job driving a haulage lorry through France. Travelling with him is a secret passenger - his daughter. Twenty-something, unkempt, off the rails. 

With a week on the road together, man and girl must attempt to restore themselves and each other, and to repair a relationship that is at once fiercely loving and deeply scarred.

As the pair journey down the motorways and through the service stations of France, a devastating picture reveals itself: a story of grief, of shame and of love in all its complex, dark and glorious manifestations.

"A whirlpool of memories, regrets and hopes." (Tim Pears)

"Unusual, utterly original and mysterious...definitely a 2020 must read." (Elaine Feeney)
