During his long, late-night drives along the motorways of Britain - through Manchester, London and the South Lancashire mill towns - our narrator falls victim to a series of psychoses. Soon these familiar landscapes are no longer what they seem, taking on a nightmarish quality as he descends into reminiscence and doubt, and the objective world crumbles to dust in his hands. The Man Who Travelled on Motorways is a cult classic, the first novel to exploit the mystique of motorway travel - the realities, unrealities and fantasies that take over the mind of the long-distance driver - from award-winning novelist Trevor Hoyle.
