Description

An Observer 10 BEST DEBUTS OF 2021A hypnotic story of young love on the run’I loved Highway Blue – a dark, glimmering, journey deep into modern America’ Rosie Price, author of What Red Was’Highway Blue holds you captive like a blues song or incantation’ Olivia Sudjic, author of Asylum RoadAnne Marie is adrift San Padua, living a precarious life of shift-work and shared apartments.

Her husband Cal left her on their first anniversary and two years later, she can’t move on. When he shows up suddenly on her doorstep, clearly in some kind of trouble, she reluctantly agrees to a drink.

But later that night a gun goes off in an alley near the shore and the young couple flee together, crammed into a beat up car with their broken past.

Their ill-at-ease odyssey takes them across a shimmering American landscape and through the darker seams of the country, towards a city that may or may not represent salvation. Highway Blue is a story of being lost and found; of love, in all its forms; and of how the pursuit of love is, in its turn, a kind of redemption.
