Train Dreams

PS 3560.O3745T73 2012
Denis Johnson He liked the grand size of things in the woods, the feeling of being lost and far away, and the sense he had that with so many trees as wardens, no danger could find him.” (1)

Denis Johnson presents us with a work-in-progress — Idaho. As the country's burgeoning growth forces men like Robert Grainier to build train tracks and other infrastructure at astounding speeds, we must follow him as he undergoes great suffering and ennui at the hands of natural and emotional tremors.
