‘Road To Nowhere’ gives us a thought-provoking glimpse into an uncompromising future that brilliantly juxtaposes futuristic hedonism with the bare fundamentals of human frailty.

M Jury

What makes this debut novel from Evan Shapiro a thoroughly engrossing read is that it is hard to pigeon hole into any particular genre. Part science fiction, thriller, mystery and romp. A fun and at times gritty ride. It’s a page turner written with insight, irreverence and is an apt observation of humanity’s capacity for suffering and destruction, yet with potential to make a positive change.

Are we on a road to nowhere?

What does it mean to be a human being when your species is on a path of self-destruction?

What do global warming, a murder, a religious cult, a young genius, a multinational corporation and an uber-cool space station have in common?

More science friction than science fiction, ROAD TO NOWHERE is a compelling and original page-turner, layered with thought provoking near future imaginings and grounded with humorous observation and insight. Engaging, exciting, funny and sexy, this strange blend of noir, science fiction, satire and philosophy will, one way or another, leave you thinking.

About the Author


The second of four children born to left-wing academic parents, Evan grew up on a diet of independent cinema, junk TV and chocolate biscuits. As a toddler he drank Dettol and shampoo and stuck forks into power-points. He was often reminded by his family that he was lucky to have survived past the age of five. While his parents blamed him for being dangerously active and carelessly inquisitive, he lays the responsibility squarely at their feet for repeatedly leaving Dettol, shampoo and forks within his grasp. He likes to define the resulting confusion from his upbringing as his perspective which he now relentlessly channels into works of fiction.
