On the Motorways

Runa Fjellanger

Anna and Ida are doing a road trip through Europe, going from one motel to another. As a child, Anna travelled those same motorways, tenting with her parents. In On the Motorways, these two trips are crosscut into one restless roadtrip in past and present.

The novel is the story of the fragile, hesitant love affair between Anna and Ida. It’s about power and limitless borders, friendship and desire, and about hurting those close to you.

On the Motorways is a novel with high pulse and high tempo, written in rhythmic, driving prose.
