REVIEW; “The Highway has that cult quality that makes readers on the road (physically and psychologically) pass a book on; the style is accomplished, the narrative complex and fulfilling.
It’s a travelers book, rather than a travel book, a novel very much of the moment, combining the concept of a westerner’s spiritual quest among the ancient peoples and philosophies of Asia with the phenomenon of the global star, and the dislocation that comes with a globalized, endlessly reproduced image of the self.
It’s an intelligent, adventurous, risk-taking novel with beautiful imagery rendering complex abstract ideas real and immediate. There is a poetic and esoteric sensibility at work here that touches on the mysteries of the universe, weaving them into a tale of a modern hero who takes his search for enlightenment on the road.”
“A lucid, otherworldly trip on the undulating road to nirvana and self-discovery across the Indian subcontinent.”
Mario Rodrigues in The Statesman
“Will Marks takes readers on an exhilarating motorcycle journey with his novel , The Highway.”
