Publisher's Summary

A lot can happen on the way from one place to another, especially when an overnight flight makes for an unexpected romantic encounter between strangers seated together; a trucker finds life beyond the ranch where he grew up; and a bored Midwestern housewife tries to escape Kansas City. This anthology of tales about people in transit features Stuart Dybek's "Pet Milk", read by Keith Szarabajka; Martha Gellhorn's "Miami-New York", read by Joanna Gleason; Edward P. Jones' "An Orange Line Train to Ballston", read by Sonia Manzano; Annie Proulx's "The Trickle-Down Effect", read by James Naughton; Dorothy Thomas' "The Getaway", read by Mia Dillon; James Thurber's "A Ride with Olympy", read by David Rakoff; and Eudora Welty's "No Place for You, My Love", read by Andrea Marcovicci.
