Train Can't Bring Me Home

Longueur: 269 pages4 heures

Description

1993. The former eastern bloc is open for business and a war is raging just over the border, but in a Hungarian campus town, a group of students and exiles escape into love and literature.

Dylan, a washed up American lecturer with a Tom Waits fixation, has an affair with Erzsi, his teenage Hungarian student, and a mixed group of students and teachers spend a crazy spring falling in love with their town and each other.

A postmodern campus novel that explores the limits of love, literature and language, Train Can't Bring Me Home is a dizzying, intellectual, comic, erotic clash of discourses that mimics a host of literary styles, from bad travel writing to music journalism to a relationship break-up written as a student essay, with an array of pastiches of literary greats like Joyce, Amis, BS Johnson, Calvino, Kundera, Bukowski, Burroughs, Beckett, Stoker, Nabokov, Marquez and more.
