Maryland Life's Summer Reading List

School starts next week here in Baltimore. That signals the coming end to summer. Quick, get in on some fun summer reading before the season ends!

A great place to start is the Summer Reading List published by Maryland Life Magazine. I was happy to see that Tracks: A Novel in Stories was on the short list!

Climb aboard this compilation of stories set on a train from Baltimore to Chicago. Each story is told from the perspective of one of the passengers. The cast of characters includes a soldier, a salesman, a former mobster, a Holocaust survivor, a couple in love, a woman grieving her parents, a poet, and a hit man. The stories stand alone but link together to form a cohesive, exciting novel.

Coincidentally, I also happen to be featured in the anthology that made their must-read list.
