Just Gotta Say…

Nothing against Swamplandia! or The Pale King, but we can‘t help wishing the Pulitzer Board had gotten its act together—and chosen Denis Johnson’s Train Dreams, the novella that appeared in our Summer 2002 issue. That would have been our first Pulitzer! As it is, it’s our first Pulitzer nomination. Train Dreams made its original appearance alongside fiction by Aleksandar Hemon and Mary Robison, interviews with Ian McEwan and Louis Begley, plus a radio play by Rick Moody ... and we have a few copies in mint condition. Buy yours while supplies last.

    Actually thought the Pulitzer committee finally did something to push the art of fiction for once in my lifetime.

    You were robbed, Lorin. “Train Dreams” was a perfect book – gorgeous, powerful and unforgettable. I gasped at certain passages. Oh the beauty of it!
