The Road

Harry Martinson

At the center of WAY OUT is the hobo Bolle and his travels through a Sweden that is soon about to fundamentally change through industrialization. Bolle has two ambitions: one, to escape from his Father’s tobacco business and become a musician, the other to go to America. The fall of the dice sends Bolle and his dreams to the life of a tramp on the road.
