Description

'Haunting, mesmerising, and so deeply intelligent about the interwoven strengths and frailties of the human heart.' Kamila Shamsie

'Compelling and profoundly moving...establishes O'Callaghan as one of the most talented contemporary Irish writers.' Irish Times

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 that is 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.
