New York Journal of Books—Stories Move Through the Train

One of the periodicals to review Tracks: A Novel in Stories is the New York Journal of Books. And the review was a great one.

“… Goodman is a born storyteller who weaves his tales of each individual character, and then ties them together to create a finely patterned cloth … you have the more transcendent experience of seeing each of the characters from many perspectives, at times understanding not only their “now” but something of their past and future.”

The Journal even reviewed other reviews of Tracks.

“Many of the reviews written of this book point out that it’s a great summer read. This is true. It’s the kind of book that you can read best at a leisurely pace, enjoying the slower rhythms of this literary ‘people watching.’”

Read the whole review at New York Journal of Books.

Take a look at what other reviewers are saying at the Tracks website.
