Rumble Strip, Paperback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


This is a powerful and darkly humorous graphic polemic by a leading British comics artist that investigates our increasingly dangerous relationship with cars.

If you want to get away with murder, buy a car. Combining autobiography, statistics, case histories, advertising and reportage, Woodrow Phoenix draws a compelling picture of the warped psychology behind our need for speed.

Review by

Not actually a novel, but definitely graphic; this is a striking but measured rant about car-use, from someone who is a car-owner himself. I don't entirely know how much it would convince an SUV driver, or someone who doesn't already have a guilty conscience about driving, mind you.
