Part 1
The first part role is to build up a landscape and present the characters.
The scene takes place in a car driving on a long flat road! There are 2men in the car! The driver who is also the narrator (it’s a first person narrative) and the 2nd one is a boy,he must be a hitch-hiker because he has a bag and the driver asks him if he’s “going far”!he has just picked him up ! They‘re talking about a murderer they have just heard about in the news on the radio! The murderer is referred to as a «he» so this killer who’s being hunted by the police is a man!
