This is an EPUB file for the autofiction novel The Hard Road. Summary: Road trips after bong rips, side-stepping ghost towns and junkie compounds, suffering paranoia while scaling Mojave Desert steppes. Three college friends explore America while searching for a place that feels like home amid the cross-country alienation that Covid-19 and the 2020 election has worsened.


What would Hunter S. Thompson's Fear & Loathing look like reimagined by Gen Zers during Covid times? There'd be just as many coke lines railed in Vegas and acid tabs absorbed in New Orleans. A few more street fights with flashed metal but just as much philosophizing.


As the main character Morrison says, "Perhaps a third eye could be our lantern in the dark."
