What readers have
said about The Intersection of
Daydream and Driving Slow
“Penny Sidoli has
brought out her best with this collection of wildly original tales
packed with descriptions of the broad landscape of the American West
and lively characters who jump off the page into your heart.”
“Light and wise.”
What you will find
inside The Intersection of
Daydream and Driving Slow, a
book about the American West. The Intersection of Daydream and
Driving Slow is a collection of short stories with the
setting of the contemporary American West. In each story the reader
will discover a wider West full of possibility and imaginative
adventure, a mix of scruffy, rough, tense, and smooth like chopped
nuts on ice cream. Each story spills its love, created with
strong, compelling writing. Penny Sidoli is a creative force gentle
as the sunset, remarkable as a gallop. It’s all about the
southwest desert, the northwest forest, all about solitude, music,
love, biologists, geologists, criminals, magic, birds, boats, red
dresses, old trucks and ranches.

especially for 3rd and 4th graders. This is
an exciting story about two Santa
Barbara children who slip back in time to 1853 and help to
bear cub from the clutches of the villainous bear-hunter, Captain Nidever."

me about any fiction books you think are great or just to talk about
some interesting ideas that came about from reading a particular
The first books I read
as a child was Robin Hood and His Band of Merry Men, and Tales of
King Arthur. Today I enjoy reading poetry and both classic and
contemporary fiction from all around the world. I have great respect
for Ray Bradbury, Leo Tolstoy, Pramoedya Ananta Toer, Willa Cather,
Philip K. Dick, Sigrid Undset, Haruki Murakami, Karen von Blixen (Isak
Dineson), J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Carson McCullers, Donn Byrne,

enjoy reading. One of the joys of the world is that there are so
many stories to discover.
