Tracks is Unexpected and Unique … Memorable

Tracks received another positive review! This time, the review comes from Everyday I Write The Book: a book review blog.


Recent reviews include The Odds by Stewart O’Nan, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, and The Singles by Meredith Goldstein.


The review calls Tracks “an homage to train travel. The characters are diverse – a Holocaust survivor, a hit man trying to retire, a traveling salesman, a train conductor, to name a few – but they all come together in the lounge car of the Amtrak Cardinal, and their stories occasionally intersect and intertwine.”

What did the reviewer like best? “The strength of the book was the cast of characters, who were quite memorable for a short story collection. Often when I finish a collection of stories, I look back and the characters seem to run together, blending into one borderless whole. But the characters in Tracks have remained distinct to me upon finishing the book. Their stories are unexpected and unique, which made them memorable beyond their short allotment of pages.”
