'Lullaby Road' Novel Continues The Story Of Truck Driver Ben Jones
For a setting that is often bright and wide open, writer James Anderson manages to find some dark places. Anderson’s first novel, The Never-Open Desert Diner , tells an intriguing but dark tale featuring a Utah truck driver named Ben Jones.
Anderson’s follow-up novel, Lullaby Road, features Jones and some of the other mysterious and lonely characters from his first book.
