4.0 out of 5 stars another chapter, June 2, 2006
By 
This review is from: I-State Lines (Paperback)
average writers attempt yet another "great american novel" or to re-write "on the road"----------good writers know that the best you can hope for,like one of those pass around stories where different people add their own paragraphs, is to add a chapter to mans endless saga of wanderlust......if you try to copy what was before you, you end up with kerouac copying homer's odyssey--------smith hasn't done that with "i-state lines"----it is one guys trials and tribulations as he fumbles toward growth and finding himself,..similar situations we've all been in, whether caught in the high school dilemna of whether to side with the jocks or the freaks, or the insecurites that in our quest for cool,have us talking in a hipster-slang wai-ki-kebonics,that make us want to just slap daz and tell him to speak english----------daz grows,and with nikki,you find the bravado language slipping away,and the real voice emerging.........read the book, and look at the still photo of a time past, one that memory and tides have softened the edges of, an old photo tucked away in smiths wallet,that at times in the midnight haze of a neighborhood bar,he is willing to pull out and show us.
