Book Description

Feb. 12 2013
'Railtracks' is a unique collaboration between two writers of remarkable achievement. A profound meditation on railways, love and loss, at once intimate and committed, it moves from the industrial to the metaphysical, from the tectonic shifts of globalization to the interior pulses of memory, and from the present to a past that still exists in vivid, essential traces.

This sensual and exploratory dialogue is accompanied throughout by the evocative photography of Tereza Stehlíková, charting its own atmospheric passage by train through the forested, winter landscapes of Southern Bohemia.

Summoning potent, hidden histories and deeply personal journeys, 'Railtracks' seeks, with a rigorous and reflective urgency, to bear witness to the pain of separations and the consolation of meetings.

2.0 out of 5 stars UMMM Nov. 20 2013
By HEIDELBERGIRL - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Umm... I may have missed the point somewhere. Nice pictures in the book.. but not dissimilar to any photo taken from any European train trip through a forest. I happen to love train trips through European forests better than anything else ever ! But the words? Flat would be a good description. Looks pretty on a coffee table but I read it in fiftten minutes and then wondered why. I may add i am a HUGE HUGE anne Michaels fan.. and have read " Fugitive Pieces" ten times at least...and seen the movie.

A beautiful unfolding of passion and longing, of comings and goings and love from a distance. Incredibly poetic and speaks to heart of any love story.
