J.E.A. Wallace has been a hotel night porter, an abattoir security guard, and a barman in The House of Lords. Born and raised in England, he is now a happily married poet who lives and writes in New York City.
Inside a speeding car, somewhere in the afterlife, the driver calms her brother with strange and hopeful tales. He responds in kind, and so they pass the time with poems, as they furiously race towards their uncertain end.They tell each other stories of East German circus clowns crossing the border and buffaloes riding the Subway. Ghosts wander a post-apocalyptic mansion and doomed lovers plot an ice storm getaway. Memories of London mix with robots in the future as they meet an escapologist's daughter, and the Invisible Man in a Times Square hotel.So settle down in the back seat and be taken on a journey from the past to the future and to beyond the grave.
