James Scottsdale did all the right things: he went to school and studied the right things, he had all the right friends, the love of a good woman and the support of his family. And then the economic crisis began and his secure life slipped and fractured.
Now, age 25, he lives on his mother’s couch, with no direction and his companions have evaporated with his money. All of that changes when The Boston 395 appears in his living room. The Boston 395 is like no train you have ever seen. Each stop exits into James’ life, revealing truths he would rather not deal with. Guided by The Conductor and populated by elements of his shattered persona, The Boston 395 will take James to places he never expected.
THE BOSTON 395 is a novella, sitting in the literary arena of magical realism/fantasy. The book follows its own rules and weaves an interesting world for the reader to get lost in, and to wrestle with.
