The acclaimed author of The True Life Adventures of Sparrow Drinkwater has created another mythological tale in which lives run headlong off the rails into tangled thickets of love, deception and narrow escape. The tale of Reed Kitchen, lifelong railway worker. full-time language lover and part-time visionary, The Fire Line is a dazzling, dramatic novel, a mesmerizing journey through an eccentric universe.
