Train Dreams discussion

All,

There was a tie this month and since I missed June and it is already July 9, I broke the tie. We will be reading Train Dreams by Dennis Johnson. This is a short Novella and should be an easy read by the 26th.

Here is the synopsis:

Denis Johnson’s Train Dreams is an epic in miniature, one of his most evocative and poignant fictions. It is the story of Robert Grainier, a day laborer in the American West at the start of the twentieth century---an ordinary man in extraordinary times. Buffeted by the loss of his family, Grainer struggles to make sense of this strange new world. As his story unfolds, we witness both his shocking personal defeats and the radical changes that transform America in his lifetime.

I would like to apologize to all for missing June and being so late on July. I like our discussions and look forward to them again. I hope everyone can join us.

Cost: $1.00

Thanks all. See you on the 26th.

Ben
