'Keevil is such an accomplished and confident stylist - inventive, engaging, casually hilarious - he never loses the reader for a second... The Drive is quite a trip.'—New Welsh ReviewRead an extract
A fast-paced and hilarious contemporary odyssey, The Drive has all the adventure and surrealism of Hunter S Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas – but overlaid with heartfelt yearning and hope.
In this novel by Tyler Keevil, a single call from his Czech girlfriend catapults Trevor into a serious crisis. Desperate to get his mojo back, he blazes down Highway 99 in a rented Dodge Neon.
But soon his journey to California is fraught with peril, and all he has for protection are a semi-automatic pistol, his trusty plastic visor and a flea-ridden cat. As the drugs and the heartbreak kick in, the question is no longer whether Trevor will get over his girlfriend’s infidelity, but whether he’ll get out alive.
