About the Book

‘A Bus Ride Through the Night’ is an adventurous journey from boyhood to early manhood through the experience of Tom MacIntyre, high school actor and discus thrower, stockroom worker, suit salesman, Off-Broadway and Broadway actor. A tall rangy, sensitive and outgoing young man, Tom finds a home for his dreams in New York City, only a bus ride from his mother’s home in suburbia, yet a far greater distance in time and maturity filled with the self-discovery of his own weaknesses as well as his enduring strengths. Tom makes a lengthy stopover at the former New York department store, B. Altman’s. Doris Fiene, the older woman with whom he shares an apartment and deeply formative years, is a truly gifted artist fated to be born at a time when the world can’t appreciate her gifts and fated to fall in love with Tom, before he’s drawn away by his own gifts. Tom’s journey doesn’t reach a final destination. Rather, it is a journey of the spirit that will last forever.
