Geist - - Letters - —Peter Dawes, Ed­mon­ton AB

David Look’s take on VIA Rail’s Cana­dian (“Sleep­ing Class,” No. 101) is good fun—rather faux Paul Th­er­oux-ish. But trav­el­ling on this train is much more than just beer bot­tles rolling back and forth be­neath the seat or dogs pee­ing in the snow at Melville, SK. The lower and up­per berths in the sleep­ing car might re­mind you of Jack Lem­mon and Tony Cur­tis in Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot—even if it’s only your wife in the up­per berth and not Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe.
