Summary

In BETWEEN TRAINS, a collection of stories, Barry Callaghan's characters include gangsters and princes of the church; murderous children and survivors of concentration camps; farmers yearning for the rapture and idle rich learning to be feckless; a blues singer and a soldier who is a sniper. Callaghan's stories are told in that stillness that is like the stillness of the hour between trains.
