Fiction. This stunning collection of short stories is a testament to the talent of Eleanor Lerman. From Greenwich Village in the 60s or rooftops in Manhattan to an airport in the Midwest, these everyday adventures explore the disenchantment of this world accompanied by love and hope and humor. Joan Larkin comments: "Equally attentive to the odd details of human behavior and the deep longings at their source, Lerman's stories make me want to go on reading, and leave me somehow hopeful." THE BLONDE ON THE TRAIN evokes memories and emotions while creating new imaginings, and inspires readers to create their own adventures. Open this book--you'll be hooked!
