work_excerpt: 
First Week in Troy—1972 A cold wind blows down the Hudson (this is before the fish came back). Fords and Chevys crawl up the ice-slick avenue canyoned by a beetling shirt factory. A boy, face pressed against family-car window, dreams warm bleakness of the desert. Moving, always moving. Moving on, moving forward, moving to and fro across a continent as if the meanest peninsula. This is America. This is the covered wagon, lightning express, clipper ship in the modern world. This is a boy, face against the safety glass, wishing he had a, wishing he knew where was, home.
