A Dozen Miles of Unpaved Road
Pray’s collection brings you into the working man’s world: a truck driver who shields a transvestite from a prison rape, the murder of a trucker behind a strip club that no one reports, a reluctant union organizer who must go to jail to get a contract signed, a young dockworker who accidentally turns his lover into a prostitute, a crew of drivers who protect a woman truck driver from the consequences of failing at her job, two black drivers in Alabama who must keep a terrified white woman out of the hands of her family. These are some of the stories in this collection. More than just the usual proletarian literature, where grumbling takes the place of storytelling, Pray’s tales are about real, everyday working people struggling through not so everyday situations. A fast-moving, dynamic read.
