by Larry Crane

Coming of age in a whistle-stop town in Illinois, naïve to a fault and always reaching, a boy rides a freight car toward a bridge on the Mississippi and winds up in jail for a night, becomes a starcrossed lover, graduates from West Point, and discovers that the life he wants is the life he’s living. Isn’t it?


Larry Crane was born and raised in a small town beside the railroad. The track took him west to Knox College, then east to attend and graduate from West Point. He commuted to Manhattan, writing articles, plays, and fiction, then moved to Maine, where he lives with his wife, Jan, in splendid isolation on Southport Island.
