When the electricity inexplicably goes out nationwide, the mundanities of life gradually shift to the rigors of survival. In this post-apocalyptic setting, an unnamed mechanic jumps into his beat-up car and drives east, journeying 4,736 kilometers to reach his dying father. Along the way, our antihero navigates memories of his family while traveling the labyrinth that is the great road. Christian Guay-Poliquin was born in Saint-Armand, Quebec, in 1982. Running on Fumes is his first novel. Jacob Homel won the J.I. Segal Translation Prize for his translation of A Pinch of Time by Claude Tatilon.
