A Nude I Knew In Paris
Midnight and Sometimes Later
This is a railroad novel that describe the lives of men who work on freight trains – and the women with whom they’re involved – in Minnesota in the 1970’s. Its characters hang out in a Minneapolis demimonde of seedy bars and pool halls, fed by soul music, booze and cigarette smoke. Theirs is a world rife with lies and more lies, stretching from Nixon’s White House clear across America to the railroad dispatcher’s office in St. Paul.
The Deep Lake Dragon
A hitchhiking drifter falls in love with a modern dancer, lives with her in New York City, then hitchhikes back west. Although he loves her still, his footloose life tempts him to compare her appeal with the charms of a former girlfriend. The ensuing heartache forces him to examine who he is–a carefree solo rambler, or a man committed to love? The answer lies deep in a dark cold lake, and deep in his own creativity.
