A prison English teacher finds an anonymous paper in a pile of essays. It's the story of a man whose life changes dramatically when he takes a late train and meets a beautiful woman. A rendezvous with her ends in disaster when an attacker interrupts them at a New York hotel. The story is the teacher's own, full of painful memories of a life lost. Gregory Harrison makes this unlikely, and at times too graphic, tale of betrayal and deception seem personal and compelling. As Schine's life falls apart and is slowly rebuilt, Harrison projects a desperate, sympathetic character even as he guides listeners toward a violent confrontation that shows the depths of Schine's journey into nightmare.
