The Illustrated Man: Chapter Four – The Highway

The Illustrated Man

Dust-jacket from the first edition

A husband and wife living by a highway in rural Mexico go on living their normal, idyllic lives as the highway fills with people fleeing a nuclear war. The story ends with some young travelers they help telling them about the nuclear war, and how the world is ending. After the travelers leave, the residents briefly wonder what the world is, and then continue with their lives.
