THE LONG BLINK is a narrative nonfiction book by Emmy Award-winning journalist, Brian Kuebler, who exposes the staggering cost of the American trucking industry's rising crash rate through the intimate struggle of Ed Slattery, who is left to piece his family back together after a trucker fell asleep at the wheel and killed his wife and maimed his son. From the historic, public settlement with the trucking company and a bizarre confrontation with its driver to one father's ongoing and, more recently, frustrating fight on Capitol Hill for safer roads, the Slattery's story is a revealing, emotional look at the rapidly growing danger we all face from the passing lane each and every day.

This catapulted them onto a two-month, seven-hundred-mile journey through enemy territory down the spine of Italy, helped by many brave local families. This new edition of The Long Walk Home sets the record of this extraordinary adventure straight. It gives Frank Simms equal billing as author, something that was denied him by the tragic early death of his companion Peter Medd.
