Late Lunch on a Slow Train

What could be more delightful than a late lunch on a slow train? How about reading the story, “Late Lunch,” in the literary journal, Slow Trains?

“Late Lunch” was the last story I had published in 2011. It appeared in the Fall 2011 issue of Slow Trains.

Slow Trains is a celebration of great writing, with an emphasis on fiction, essays, and poetry that reflect the spirit of adventure, the exploration of the soul, the energies of imagination, and the experience of Big Fun. Slow Trains is honored to have fiction included in the "Best of the Web" award anthology,
E2Ink-1, guest edited by Pam Houston, and also to be listed as a recommended fiction resource in The Best American Short Stories. Slow Trains regularly submits exceptional writing to all the "Best American" book series, along with Pushcart nominations.

“Late Lunch” is a story from Tracks. It is the second of my Tracks stories to be published in Slow Trains; the journal published an earlier version of “The Silences” in 2008.
