“What’s the bravest thing you ever did? He spat in the road a bloody phlegm. Getting up this morning, he said.”
A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don’t know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other.
You will find a copy waiting for you at the bookshop il libro.
Do you want to pre-order the next book of our October-discussion?
To help us with our planning we ask you to pre-order your copy for the October-discussion. After The Road, we will meet and talk about The Marlow Murder Club by Robert Thorogood. If you wish to be part of the discussion group, you are kindly asked to buy the book in our bookshop and order it now so that we’ll have enough copies for everyone in due time.
If you wish to participate, please let us know by phone or email. Thank you!
