Abstract:

"Motional Blur tells the story of a disaffected surfer, Luke Andersen, who drives for a black car service part-time. When he's summoned for a fare involving a five-and-a-half hour ride from Santa Barbara to Las Vegas, this obligation ruins his birthday plans, even though he tries to refuse but doesn't succeed. When they reach Vegas, his mysterious fare, Charles Gearhart, a man in his mid-60s, tells Luke to keep going. What should have been a day drive becomes a seemingly meandering trip through the western United States, with Gearhart directing Luke through Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. Luke repeatedly tries to beg off, but can't. The deeper he gets into this journey, the more intrigued he becomes by his passenger, who constantly imparts wisdom to help his wayward driver grow up. Theirs is a journey in search of answers. And, in the novel's stunning conclusion, they find them. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction-novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home"--

Publisher Synopsis

"Eringer's present-tense narration and conversational style keep the reader engaged throughout the novel. Fans of road-trip stories will enjoy the ride and the descriptions of the American West."-- Read more...
