Latest A-Tracks-tion

Over the past few years, Tracks: A Novel in Stories has received a good number of positive reviews and endorsements. The latest review featured on Amazon and Goodreads comes from someone after a second reading of the book!

Poet and author Shirley J. Brewer had this to say.

“Goodman's novel-in-stories captivated me, not once but twice! And I found the second reading even richer, as I delved into the lives of passengers on a train traveling from Baltimore to Chicago. Goodman skillfully weaves his stories into a seamless "track" - not a sleeper in the bunch! He allows us to see his characters in numerous stories - sometimes as features, other times as accessories.

“The author takes us on a journey beyond the faces and facades of passengers, revealing their inner doubts and hopes. I found myself caring deeply for these fictional characters, empathizing with their dramas and dreams. As the hit man, Charlie, concludes: "So many people going in the same direction, yet all headed for different places."
