FP 10,000(CDN) Inspired by the life of Clarke's father, the novel tells the story of a black working-class man caught between the expectations of his times and gleaming possibilities of the open road. Carl Black is an intellectual and artist, a traveller, reader, and unapologetic womaniser. A motorcyclist. He burns for the bohemian life, but is trapped in a railway porter's prosaic-at times humiliating-existence. Taking place over one dramatic year in Halifax, MOTORCYCLIST vividly recounts Carl's travels and romantic exploits, as he tours the backroads of the east coast and the bedrooms of a series of beautiful women.
