Easily charming and lucidly rendered, these stories evoke treasured memories of bygone times, celebrating the stoic journeys of ordinary men and women across life.
Every journey combines the trauma of separation with the excitement of discovery. The new people in town carry the past from a faraway home and face the uncertainties of arrival. During the day they struggle to adjust to unfamiliar life. By evening, longing for what they one left behind subsumes everything. Their stories record life in all its intensity and grandeur, for living is mere repetition unless it is on the road. The tales of the new settlers capture their struggle and give an account of love and losses that makes up what life is all about.
