Very enjoyable, thought provoking and inventive collection of comic, heartfelt and fantastical stories. The author’s talent for telling something in 20 words when others would take 100 is supreme.

I Could Ride All Day In My Cool Blue Train Synopsis

Following the spectacular critical success of Peter Hobbs' debut novel, here is a wonderful collection of comic, heartfelt, grotesque, other-worldly and fantastical stories.

In I Could Ride All Day In My Cool Blue Train Peter Hobbs drags the British short story into the 21st Century. A divorced mother in Florida reflects on the life that is slipping away from her. A young zoologist sees the world from the business end of his zebras. A writer, marooned in a watery dystopia and charged with entertaining an unruly mob, pays the consequences for his (in)sensitive choice of material. And Pythagoras explains just what exactly was his problem with triangles.

Linked and distinct in its use of recurring 'Dream' stories as a leitmotif, I Could Ride All Day In My Cool Blue Train reveals a writer of enormous range and virtuoso ability.
