Awards
Pulitzer Prize for Fiction Best Book (nominee)
Denis Johnson's Train Dreams is an epic in miniature, one of his most evocative and poignant fictions.

Robert Grainer is a day laborer in the American West at the start of the twentieth century - an ordinary man in extraordinary times. Buffeted by the loss of his family, Grainer struggles to make sense of this strange new world. As his story unfolds, we witness both his shocking personal defeats and the radical changes that transform America in his lifetime.

Suffused with the history and landscapes of the American West - its otherworldly flora and fauna, its rugged loggers and bridge builders - the new novella by the National Book Award-winning author of Tree of Smoke captures the disappearance of a distinctly American way of life.
