A mythic hitchhiking adventure

“I didn’t squander my youth on responsibility,” quips Steve Theme, author of Asphalt Asylum: The Dark Roads to Light.   It is part hitchhiking journal, part mythic adventure as Steve Theme tells the story of his 7,000 mile hitchhiking quest to run away and find home again.   Steve introduces us to the fascinating people you meet on the road.  More than that, he offers a window into the angst and idealism of a nineteen year-old-male as his 50+ self reflects on what it means to be human, to connect with humans, to struggle with whatever it is we call “God.”
