Driving Jaimie

Thief Press
Free sample

It’s 2005, a forgettable year. Hired as a driver by Jaimie’s London gallery, Francis sets out with Jaimie on a road trip to Turin, where Jaimie’s new exhibition will open.

Jaimie is a painter, living on his fading reputation. Francis is drifting through life without much purpose. Against the winter backdrop of the road, they fail to make much sense of each other. In Turin, Max is an American abroad, selling art to expat Russians and the Klosters set. At night by the pool in the Turinese fog, events spin violently out of control.

“Hypnotic,” “violent,” “poetic,” “beautiful,” “dark,” “compelling,” “deliciously evocative” – this first novel by Ben Morris is a road-novel remade as a slow-burning thriller.
