Summary

Four years ago Bryan abandoned his labor of love, a newspaper for truckers. Now he’s returned–with no word of where he’s been–and things have changed. His former lover is filled with rage, his new coworker is filled with incessant adoration, and his paper is filled with personal ads. As he considers giving up for good, Bryan searches for what he couldn't find on the road: a way to keep faith in humanity.
