Summary:The year is 1955, and the world of Danny Meadoff spins with ease and
stability. Eisenhower is president, soul groups are black, NBA teams
are white. Fathers do not speak with sons. The Dodgers have jumped
out to an early lead and look to meet the Yankees in the Series. And,
according to universal plan, to lose. Everything is in its place. Or
is it? The father of Danny's best friend has become a philanderer and
a Republican. The sax player at Flatbush and Nostrand blows notes
that are not in the songs. There is talk-inconceivable, but talk
nonetheless--of the Dodgers leaving Brooklyn. Danny's world seems to
be wobbling in its orbit. Most worrisome, in this summer when time
suspends and loopholes dimple the laws of probability, is the shadow.
Late at night in Danny's backyard a shadow appears. Or does it? LEAD
US NOT INTO PENN STATION is a picaresque, a tale following three
young men through the rapids of loyalty, stasis, and mutability.
Comic and nostalgic, it tells the story of a boy's redemptive love
for his father.
