Already published in Chinese and Italian, The Train is the follow up to Chihoi”s successful book of stories The Library. In it Hong Kong artist Chihoi adapts a short story by Taiwanese writer Hung Hung about a surreal train ride. With dream-like logic one of the characters asks, “Have you ever imagined the world outside the train?” The protagonist waits for someone, a woman perhaps, and observes with trepidation each time a new car is coupled to the train and the occupants spill out. Chihoi has done it again in this beautifully rendered pencilscape of a dream.
