Journey by train from Baltimore to Chicago via the perspectives of a diverse array of passengers. They are the strangers we meet every day: a soldier slowly losing his faith in the war, a businessman learning to balance his job and the family he loves, a computer geek-turned-criminal, a Holocaust survivor finding hope in facing her fears, couples in love, a woman dealing with the death of her parents, a poet hunting for inspiration, and a hit man with a job to finish before the train arrives at its destination. Watch as these and other characters' lives and stories seamlessly link and intersect, quietly shaping and changing one another.
"... a most cunningly crafted tale--a perfect read for trains, planes and automobiles... or even for your armchair." -Madison Smartt Bell, author of All Souls' Rising
"Eric D. Goodman's Tracks is an absolute delight. The beautifully written stories of strangers riding the same train will hypnotically pull you in and captivate you to the very end." -Jessica Anya Blau, author of Drinking Closer to Home and The Summer of Naked Swim Parties
"Who among us hasn't sat on a train and played at reading the minds of strangers? In this way, Tracks is a voyeuristic fantasy fulfilled. But here's the real surprise: Once you have mental telepathy, it's hard to call anyone a stranger anymore." -Aaron Henkin, Baltimore's NPR station, WYPR
