9780692530771: RAIL WALKING and Other Stories

In RAIL WALKING and Other Stories, Pushcart-nominated writer Linda L. Dunlap invites readers into the lives of characters who struggle to stay hopeful in a troubled world even while the ground shifts precariously beneath their feet.

Dunlap sets her debut collection in the South, but the theme of the stories, man’s battle with himself, and the issues with which the characters struggle, are universal. The guilt over an imperfect child, the disruption of a marriage by betrayal and old age, the moral dilemma of abortion, and the almighty task of loving the unlovable. Characters are treated with understanding, humor, and compassion. Good doesn’t always win out, and honorable people sometimes behave dishonorably. But the author's belief that everyone does their best even when their best is often petty and despicable makes the reader believe this, too. The glue that binds the stories together is the sense of hope the author instills in her characters. This hope is the gift that saves them from despair as they struggle with grace and dignity to make sense of their imperfect world.

About the Author:

Linda L. Dunlap began her second career as a fiction writer in the late eighties after a successful career as a registered nurse. Her first story, "I'm Here, Mr. Sullivan," was published by Pencil Press Quarterly in 1987. Since then, she's had numerous short works published in literary and university presses across the country including The Crescent Review, Florida Magazine, RE:AL, Timber Creek Review, and Savannah Literary Journal. She was awarded artist's fellowship grants from the Florida Department of Cultural Affairs in 1996, in 2000 and again in 2010, and her short story, "Goldenrod" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2010. A native of Georgia, she now lives in Winter Park, Florida and tries to write every day.
