I can't forget these beguiling and unsparing stories and I don't want to." -- John Dufresne, author of "No Regrets, Coyote" "cover copy" "'Train Shots' announces an outstanding new voice. Vanessa Blakeslee's stories traverse a trilling range of landscapes and voices, but no matter where her characters find themselves, their struggles with lost love and loneliness are authentic and engrossing and will not soon be forgotten." -- Laura van den Berg, author of "The Isle of Youth" and "What the World Will Look Like When All the Wa "cover copy" "In each of the eleven stories in "Train Shots," Vanessa Blakeslee immerses her readers in nuanced and impressively imagined worlds in which characters must choose between loyalty or justice, between sticking with it or giving up.
