What had happened, from those days until now? And why had it? And how had his life gone? And who was to blame? Or why did he think he had to blame anyone? Certainly he couldn't even blame Mr. Roach, caught in the same turmoil as everyone believing half-truths in order to blame other people.

These are the forlorn thoughts of Alex Chapman, the tragic anti-hero of David Adams Richards' masterful novel The Lost Highway . An exploration of the philosophical contortions of which man is capable, the novel tracks the desperate journey of an eternally lost and orphaned child/man who has nearly squandered his frail birthright but might yet earn some degree of redemption.

David Adams Richards' The Lost Highway is a taut psychological thriller that goes far beyond the genre into the worlds of Leo Tolstoy, and Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights , as well as classical Greek mythology, testing the very limits of humankind's all too tenuous grasp on morality.

This is a story of greed, betrayal and murder. But what happened to David Adams Richards to make him so preachy and anti almost everything? In the end, the story is really not credible.
