Talking Fiction and Travel at Late Last Night Books

Sonia Linebaugh recently interviewed me for Late Last Night Books, a blogzine about fiction by novelists. In the interview, we talked about Tracks: A Novel in Stories, writing, travel writing, and train travel both in Russia and the United States.

“I love traveling by train, ensconced with strangers boarding and debarking according to some mysterious and personal trajectory,” Sonia wrote. “So right from the start I was intrigued by Eric Goodman’s Tracks, a novel in short stories about travelers on a train headed from Baltimore for Chicago."

Sonia even found an old travel story I wrote about a Paul Simon tour and compared the road trip narrative to train travel. “It was both a homage and an evocation.”
