Description
From the author of "The Memory of Running"-a beautifully crafted story of a man who returns home to discover the truth about his past
Featuring the warmth and authenticity that made "The Memory of Running" such a major success, "Traveler" wraps a beautifully written ode to friendship within a compelling mystery. Jono Riley is an aging bartender and part-time actor in Manhattan who is compelled to return to the working-class neighborhoods of East Providence, where he came of age with his three best friends in the early 1960s. Jono is drawn into an attempt to solve the mystery of several shootings that occurred back then. As the surprising truth emerges, Jono is forced to come to terms with a past that is not quite what he remembers, even as he makes new resolutions in the present.
