Excerpt from The Narrows

The highway sign stood against a barren desert landscape. It said:

Zzyzx Road
1 mile

I knew the road. Or more accurately, I knew the sign. Anybody from L.A. who made the road trip to and from Las Vegas as often as I had in the last year would have known it. At just about the halfway point on 15 Freeway was the Zzyzx Road exit, recognizable by its unique name if nothing else. It was in the Mojave and it appeared to be a road to nowhere. No gas station, no rest stop. At the end of the alphabet and at the end of the world.
