Road to Nowhere by Christopher Pike

There's Always a Spaceship From the Mind of God!

The PikeCast welcomes Jude Doyle author of Trainwreck: The Women We Love to Hate, Mock and Fear… and Why and Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy and the Fear of Female Power to take a ride down the Road to Nowhere, Christopher Pike's 1993 novel that is a journey through a liminal world while storytelling about relationships falling apart.

A dark and stormy night.


Teresa Chafey is running away from home. Driving north along the California coast, she picks up two mysterious hitchhikers: Poppy Corn and Freedom Jack. Together the three of them tell stories: Teresa, of her devastating relationship with her boyfriend; Poppy, of a
sad young woman she once knew; and Freedom, of a talented young man with a violent temper.

Yet as they talk a darker story unfolds around them. A story of life and death, of redemption and damnation. It will be the longest night of Teresa's life.

Maybe the last night of her life.

Jude Ellison S. Doyle is the author of Trainwreck: The Women We Love to Hate, Mock and Fear… and Why and Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy and the Fear of Female Power. Their columns on gender, power and pop culture can be found all across the Internet. Their first comic book, MAW, is forthcoming from BOOM Studios in September 2021.
