A cult classic by an award-winning novelist, The Man Who Travelled on Motorways is 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. The night drives between Manchester and London are long and dull, even though our narrator whiles away the hours reminiscing about his life - the motorway service stations, the pubs and hotels, the mills and moorlands that punctuate his journeys . . . But then things start to change: nothing is what it appears to be; no actions are innocent. As the secret life of his imagination begins to take on a nightmarish power of its own, so the objective world begins to sift through his fingers like a handful of dust. 'A novel that blurs the boundaries between fantasy and illusion, amusing and terrifying by turns as it considers the impact of motorway travel on the modern psyche' - Morning Star

R S Thomas is accepted, along with Ted Hughes, Philip Larkin and Seamus Heaney, as one of the great post-war British poets. All his life, he was a minister in the Church of Wales, at a succession of increasingly remote country parishes. This is a hilarious story of this man's life, and that of his household.
