Genre: Drama
The time period is 1938 in a Southern port city. Joseph Curcio, an ex-alcoholic, and former teacher is now homeless and unmotivated. He meets Amanda who was once his pupil. She is a street artist who sells mosaics made of broken glass, and she allows him to share the abandoned fisherman's cabin where she lives. Joseph begins to find strength in their platonic friendship and resolves to resurrect his career by writing an autobiographical journal through which he hopes to confront and understand his failures, his youthful idealism, and past relationships with his immigrant father and the woman he loved. Life imitates art just as his resembles the broken pieces of glass in Amanda’s mosaics, Joseph attempts to put the pieces of his life back together to make him whole again. As his understanding and his affection for Amanda grow the character flaws that caused his original undoing also re-emerge. A man on the verge of redemption reaches the crossroads where violence and death intervene. More info →

Nobody Knows Where Frank Hutchison Is Buried

$21.85eBook: $8.99
Nobody Knows Where Frank Hutchison Is Buried satirizes an ethos often ascribed to the war baby generation. Frank Hutchison is raised in a laissez-faire manner by his widowed mother and has to fashion an identity by observing the way adults and his schoolmates act and speak. Though often lonely and insecure he cherishes his freedom and believes that he can recognize others who possess a similar consciousness, which he finds is often expressed in creativity and non-conformism. He imagines himself becoming a baseball player, and activist, a historian, and a writer, but his real goal is simply to remain free of any responsibility except to himself. More info →
