Tracks, a novel in stories, is set on a train traveling from Baltimore to Chicago. Each story is told from the perspective of a passenger on the train. They’re the strangers we meet every day: a soldier, a salesman, a former mobster, a Holocaust survivor, couples in love, a woman who has lost her parents, a poet, a hit man. These and other characters fill the train with emotion and complexity. The stories in Tracks stand alone, but they become stronger when linked together. A secondary character in one story becomes the main character in the next.
“… a terrific collection of stories. Short stories are often an under-appreciated art form. In Tracks, Eric D. Goodman takes the craft to the level of art. An exciting talent.” Thomas Steinbeck, Author of Down to a Soundless Sea
“… 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 The Summer of Naked Swim Parties
