Review by: Randy Johnson on March 12, 2012 :
LONG ROAD HOME's basic idea is familiar to me. A widower on his way home after a holiday party that was something of a disaster, driving on familiar roads, suddenly finds those roads not so familiar. Turns, long stretches, entirely different from those he'd driven along so many times.

That happened briefly to the author and to me once. I was driving on a road I passed through every day on the way to work and, for just an instant as I rolled up to a stoplight, I recognized nothing. That was very disconcerting.

Enjoyed this story.
