All is not well with Christopher Wilks. Nor is all as it seems. For one thing, he’s ill-equipped for the mind-bending journey he’s about to undertake.
Hitching a ride in a strange fifties-era station wagon driven by an even stranger couple of elderly eccentrics he calls The Mister and Missus, Christopher finds his life unwinding along with the countless miles- all into the WEST. Is the journey real? Most certainly. But when is the natural actually supernatural? He’s not quite sure. Mystical campsites, impossible visitations, shattering memories come-to-life… the roadside attractions he encounters are incredible and exhilarating.
James Andrew’s WEST straps the reader in for a thrill ride through landscapes both painfully real, and wildly fantastical.
