No Stopping Train

by Les Plesko

An outpouring of admiration for his courage on the page. Refusing to edit his fiction for marketability…a masterwork in language and imagery…Bearing the weight of his literary career, Plesko’s long-awaited novel is a powerful meditation on his country’s history and the expansiveness of humanity . . . serious readers of literary fiction will rejoice." —Library Journal, Starred Review —
