Lost Highway tells the story of Sapper Reeves, a gifted country musician and songwriter working the rainy backroads and forlorn taverns of the southern mountains in the years after World War II. Leaving his wife and son behind in his small West Virginia hometown, he is able to make only a paltry living with his music, and finds that his talent is as underappreciated as the country he and his band travel through. Eventually Sapper reaches a crisis of faith, one that reverberates from the ragged hope of the Eisenhower era to the anguish of Vietnam, where his son serves as a Marine. A nuanced and poetic first-person narrative, Lost Highway is at once the story of a brilliant musician's struggle for self-respect and artistic integrity and a textured portrait of an American family - a father's complex love for his son, a combat veteran's endurance and dignity, and a redeeming love affair that crosses half a century.
