Driving that train high on lo cain
Loves Lovely Counterfeit by James M. CainI was aware of the author as a primary source for some of my favorite noir movies, so I knid of knew what to expect. Indeed, this is very much a book of its time: 1942. Lake City - an imaginary mid Western town after the prohibition, the gangsters have the police and politicians under their thumb and can act with impunity from a downtown hotel.
Enter two young idealists - one man thinking he can escape the consequences of his bad decision of hooking up with a crime lord and one woman thinking that she can change things for the better.
James M Cain has the athmosphere and the dialogue down to a T. For him this was contemporary reportage, his daily bread. Theres an extraordinary monologue about professional footbal seen from the inside. theres some witty repartees between lovers, the smoky corners of dusty hotels and the vintage car drives through the mean streets - everything weve come to associate with the genre.
The book is quite short, but thats OK - it tells its story with an economy of style and with restrained emotion that is quite convincing.

From the ease of checking in at the UK's finest rail station just 30 minutes before departure to arriving in the heart of Paris, Brussels or Amsterdam without having to deal with baggage reclaim, traveling by rail to northern Europe feels both seamless and everyday. Likewise, driving onto a dedicated train Eurotunnel Le Shuttle service near Folkestone for a minute ride to Calais, far quicker than using a ferry across the English Channel, is now seen as completely normal. The same can be said for freight train drivers readying themselves for an epic 18 day, 7,mile trip from Barking in East London all the way to China. The feat of engineering that has made this all possible, the Channel Tunnel, opened 25 years ago. In the quarter century since, it's become not only a vital physical link between the UK and mainland Europe, but a highly symbolic one, particularly in an era of Brexit.
He has explored the dark side of the American dream, broken promises, and the possibilities of salvation and redemption. On those records, the characters were yearning for escape, looking for a way out, trying to make sense of their lives.

For the moment, anyway, he likes his chances better of making a game-saving play than getting the parenting technique down. So much so that she had him comfortably bundled in a onesie meant to resemble a baseball for the clinching game of the ALCS. And all the better that his is a mirthful and infectiously exuberant face, one that catcher Salvador Perez has brought to life with Instagram harassment and that third baseman Mike Moustakas pretty well summed up as he playfully interrupted an interview with Cain a locker away. There is so much else to fasten to with Cain, of course, whose presence — along with Alex Gordon in left and Jarrod Dyson in center — in late-game scenarios gives the Royals as dynamite a defensive outfield as there is in baseball. Cain is mesmerizing to watch, as much for his rapid, rabid romps after a ball as his patented personal flourishes.
