THIS ENDLESS ROAD explores life through character in Michael Overa’s second short story collection. In just ten stories, Overa manages to define humanity. Overa’s short stories are “deeply touching” and “allow for you to become the accidental voyeur’ as they navigate uncomfortable truths and challenges.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always enjoyed road trips. In particular, I enjoy imagining the lives and realities of people that live in different, untraveled places. The book was created with these places and realities in mind.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Milan Kundera once said that every character is an author's invented self. Many of the characters are indeed that. I've tried to imagine myself in the shoes of strangers. As with many writers, I have also incorporated elements of friends, acquaintances, and family members.
"The road has a lunar pull that eclipses all other thoughts for days and weeks at a time. Yet, not long after Billy returns to the road there is a shift in the gravitational pull and he begins to think only of home. For two decades, there has been the ebb and flow. When he is on the road he feels pulled towards home, and when he is home he feels pulled towards the road."
