The Art of the Engine Driver, Paperback

The Art of the Engine Driver Paperback



There they are, still as a photograph, listening for the distant thud of the sun as it prepares to drop from the sky ...On a hot summer's night, a family of three are off to a party in their bristling suburbia.

But nothing is as it seems and soon we are walking with them through the past lives of a bully, a drunk and a disaffected youth.

As the story of the neighbourhood unfolds the old and the new, diesel and steam, town and country all collide - and nobody will be left unaffected. "The Art of the Engine Driver" is a luminous and evocative take on ordinary suburban lives told with an extraordinary power and depth.
