Train Dreams: A Novella by Denis Johnson
Train Dreams: A Novella

rroseselavy, January 30, 2013

An elegy for the most common sort of person who must in some ways typify who really settled the American West. Much in the spirit of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men by James Agee, Johnson finds the glory and poetry in the life of someone people did not even notice had died. An amazing book that could not be more well written, nor written with more economy.

Train Dreams: A Novella by Denis Johnson
Train Dreams: A Novella

rroseselavy, January 1, 2013

A beautiful elegy to the ordinary people who settled the American West. The protagonist accomplishes little of moment in his life and dies unnoticed, yet his life is somehow heroic and important. This is a marvelous read not to be missed.
