The narrator leaves home with his blind dog and an MP3 player. He travels aimlessly for three years from motel to motel. He assigns numbers to those he meets on the road, and writes to one of them at the end of every day in an attempt to cheer them up. No one ever writes back: but they might.
Slow to start but as we learn more about the narrator's life we begin to care about him. A book about communication which will linger in your mind.
