Trapped in a life he can no longer embrace, Ballard Davies decides to take drastic measures. He decides to begin again.
Leaving everything behind, he gets in his car and sets out to become the person he feels he was born to be, forgetting the man he had let himself become.
It is a journey that will force him to reexamine who he is, and what he has to offer to a world that he hasn’t even begun to understand.
From the reviewers:
Enjoyable and though provoking. The author did a good job of blending an engaging story with philosophical and eastern spiritual principles. I loved the way he described each of his characters and enjoyed not knowing what was around the next corner as his story evolved. The book reminded me that we all have our insecurities and our yearnings; our eccentricities and our stories – Shirley
Refreshingly earnest examination of life’s biggest questions. This book is a breath of fresh air in a world where literature so often seems about literary sleight-of-hand and cheap parlour tricks. The author shows the courage to address life’s biggest questions with heart-wrenching sincerity. You come away admiring his gutsiness, and feeling a stirring within your own heart to look up at the stars and find your own way. – Dan
Faulkner Meets Camus Meets Kerouac Meets Ellison. Haunted by his failures as a human being, the protagonist sets off on an existentialist fugue journey, wandering along the dusty roads of Self-examination. Calls to mind the journeys of Faulkner’s Joe Christmas, that of Ralph Ellison’s unnamed protagonist in Invisible Man, as well as the wanderings of Kerouac and the reflective despair of Camus. – Lance Murdock
I enjoyed the fast pace and originality of the novel as well as its gritty description of life. – Al
