In Truck Fever a young man travels overland from London to Nairobi in a truck with a group of squabbling, treacherous cast-offs of Thatcher's Britain, including privately educated schoolgirls, a predatory market gardener, a former torturer from the British Army, a locksmith claiming to be a UFO-abductee, three conniving nurses and a prim (but shady) quantity surveyor.
