The author of nine novels, Clyde Edgerton has built a reputation as a sage commentator on the American experience. In The Night Train, Edgerton weaves the ultimately uplifting tale of friends Dwayne, a James Brown-inspired crooner, and Larry, apprentice to a jazz musician. One black, one white, Dwayne and Larry face daunting challenges to their friendship—and futures—in 1960s America.
“… the work of a generous, restrained writer whose skill and craft allows small scenes to tell a larger, more profound story.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
