After suffering an unbearable loss, a man takes a road trip in an attempt to find solace and encounters beauty, brutality, and beguiling characters along the way in this darkly thrilling novel. Grieving the deaths of his wife and infant daughter, Nathan Soderquist decides to journey westward across the continent, documenting the ever-changing sky in brief entries of ravishing poetry. Desperately lonely and with nothing left to lose, he drives through vacant landscapes committing acts of violence, nobility, cowardice, and bravery, all the while trying to save the world from evil. After his recklessness leads to an accident that leaves his body broken, he heals and continues his journey on bicycle before that is taken from him as well. Bent on revenge he sets out again on foot, and a violent midnight confrontation puts him on a path that could lead to either destruction or redemption.
Brian Panhuyzen is the author the short story collection The Death of the Moon and the novel Night Is a Shadow Cast by the World. He has also written for the Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival. He lives in Toronto.

Editorial Reviews

"Nathan Soderquist's new life and freedom stand on a foundation of intolerable loss. In gorgeous language and with a picaresque gallery of fascinating characters, Panhuyzen has crafted a moving lament for a particular kind of man: furious, tender, reckless, and forging ahead into an uncertain future." —Gil Adamson, author of The Outlander
