Seventeen stories in The Grifter, The Poet, and the Runaway Train: Stories from a Yankee Writer's Notebook. 20 years worth of collected work by Geoffrey Douglas, from his pieces in Yankee Magazine. Some recount public events, widely reported; others are more private, the stories of men and women surviving, facing choices, living life: the last race of a luckless small-time jockey; a local police chief’s terrible moral quandary; a young man’s tortured path toward suicide. All of them, by subject and by design, are stories for today.
