Book description
'Jones was a master of the short story [and] Night Train will be an amazing discovery for anyone who cares about literature.' Philipp Meyer, New York Times bestselling author of The Son

A posthumous and definitive collection of new and selected stories by short-fiction icon and National Book Award finalist Thom Jones, with a stunning introduction by Amy Bloom

Thom Jones's stories are high-octane, prose-drunk entertainment. His characters are grifters and drifters, rogues and ne'er-do-wells - some lovable, some not - but each with a voice that never fails to grab you by the collar. They include Vietnam soldiers, amateur boxers, psych ward veterans and an unforgettable adolescent DJ radio host, among others.

Perfectly capturing the essence of this icon of the American short story, Night Train showcases the sheer breadth and power of his inimitable stories.

'Bleakly and outrageously comic . . . Reading Thom Jones's fiction is like speeding in an open car: the landscape blurs, the momentum becomes intoxicating -- and then the brakes are applied, with no warning.' Joyce Carol Oates
