Book Description Picador, 2012. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "A triumph of spare writing . . . A gem of a story, set in rough times, in a tough terrain, and tenderly told." -Bob Minzesheimer, USA Today "Pure, clean American simplicity in prose that is easy to mimic and hard to make . . . The visionary, miraculous element in Johnson's deceptively tough realism makes beautiful appearances in this book. The hard declarative sentences keep their powder dry for pages at a time, and then suddenly flare up into lyricism; the natural world of the American West is examined, logged, and frequently transfigured." -James Wood, The New Yorker.

Book Description Picador. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 128 pages. Dimensions: 6.9in. x 4.5in. x 0.5in.A New York Times Notable BookAn Esquire Best Book of 2011A New Yorker Favorite Book of 2011A Los Angeles Times Favorite Book of 2011 Denis Johnsons Train Dreams is an epic in miniature, one of his most evocative and poignant fictions. It is the story of Robert Grainier, a day laborer in the American West at the start of the twentieth century---an ordinary man in extraordinary times. Buffeted by the loss of his family, Grainer struggles to make sense of this strange new world. As his story unfolds, we witness both his shocking personal defeats and the radical changes that transform America in his lifetime. Suffused with the history and landscapes of the American West, this novella by the National Book Award--winning author of Tree of Smoke captures the disappearance of a distinctly American way of life.
