"A middle-aged father takes the reader on a five-thousand-mile road trip, the one he always wished he'd taken as a young man. Recently divorced and uncertain of the future, he rereads ... Jack Kerouac's On the Road and along with his two sons and his best friend heads for the highway to rekindle his spirit. However, a family secret turns the cross-country journeyu into an unexpected examination of his role as a father, and compels him to look to the past and the fathers who came before him to find contentment and clarity, and celebrate the struggles and triumps of being a dad"--Publisher's description.
