A car-obsessed Driver and Mechanic aimlessly head East from L.A. in a souped-up 1955 Chevy, drag racing for money and thrills. Drifting across the Southwest, they keep being buzzed by a Pontiac GTO. They are joined by The Girl after she climbs into their car while the two are eating in a diner. Later at a gas station, the three meet "GTO" and challenge him to a cross-country race to Washington, D.C. for "pink slips," where the winner will get the loser's car. Along the way, however, they keep stopping to help each other, and winning seems far from their thoughts. The road is itself a place to live, is home, not just a way to move

Flats : a novel by Rudolph Wurlitzer( Book )

12 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in English and French and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flats is a post-apocalyptic exploration of the human self. Submerged amidst a cast of characters named after ruined American cities who compete over a shrinking fringe of space, Flats is a modern masterpiece of the counterculture. Quake chronicles the unraveling of society after an earthquake strikes 1960s Los Angeles. By painting a bleak picture of what people are capable of doing to one another in extreme circumstances, Quake is nihilistic and haunting, as well as uncomfortably foreboding. And more relevant than ever

In the 1950s, globetrotting New York construction engineer Walter Faber is drawn to Sabeth, a young German woman he meets on a ship traveling from New York to Paris; perhaps it's because of her resemblance to an old flame of his. Sabeth is drawn to him as well, even though she reads Albert Camus and Walter's never read a work of fiction. Sabeth tells Faber she's planning to hitchhike across Europe. He's worried for her, and offers to drive her to Rome. Along the way, his concern becomes romance, and romance leads to tragedy
