Order Now Hugo Race's new non-fiction book, Road Series...

Road Series is both love story and elegy, a true and revealing tale. Renowned musician Hugo Race’s evocations of Melbourne, Australia, the USA, Berlin and Eastern Europe, Italy, Brazil, and Africa, are poetic and searching, always incisive and exquisitely written. While the idea of being a global citizen is explored as a creative force for the artist, this is ultimately a book that is grounded in the rich possibilities of the everyday.  Music and travel collide and coalesce, and the reader is given rare insights into what it means to devote one's life to the musical journey, to traverse the world in search of true spirit. While Road Series parallels Kerouac's journey of 'battered suitcases' and 'longer ways to go' it also wonderfully bears witness to his realisation that 'the road is life'.
