Reviews

Praise for The Great Northern Express

"
Like Howard Frank Mosher, I am a novelist and a cancer survivor, and I live in northern New England. The journey Mr. Mosher describes is very familiar to me--made more poignant by the faultless details and inimitable characters the author encounters on his odyssey of self-discovery. Mosher has always been a gifted storyteller; this time, there is an added euphoria in his storytelling--borne by the hope he and I share: for now, we have dodged a bullet that thirty thousand American men don't dodge every year."
--John Irving

"Mosher colorfully weaves stories...to create a brilliantly vibrant quilt that covers us with his warmth, humor, and love of discovery, reading, and writing."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Whimsical....Mosher provides a genial reminder that adventures are possible at any age."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Hilarious, poignant, and honest, this bittersweet memoir is a sheer delight to read."
--Booklist
