Alan wants to start a new life in a new town but he's short of cash for a car to get him there. When he agrees to an egg-collecting assignment from a rich stranger he finds himself on a surreal journey across a Europe at war with itself, haunted by Mike, the baseball-bat-wielding literary purist, Deirdre, the maddening mental nurse, and a trail of destruction he began by mistake. James Meek's high-octane perversion of the Grand Tour takes interweaving plots and characters hurtling down a continent's highways at dangerous speeds.
