by Rich Perin

How are you at change, friend? Do you carry yourself with grace and dignity, or fall apart, dissolve into insignificance without humor?

The Last Payphone on the West Coast is calling. Its 12 stories feature a shopping-cart tramp, a freshly released ex-con, a 1979 Cadillac hearse, and other folks from the periphery negotiating the age of smart phones and instantaneous expectations.

  1. Eva

    Irreverent and imaginative. The Last Payphone On The West Coast delivers compelling characters who face surprises both fantastic and alluring. A fun read and a reminder to look for magic.

  2. strikerbison

    A survey of the American soul. These characters fit their skins as best they can and offer no complaints. It’s as though they’re reality in corporeal form looking into a tarnished mirror and seeing nothing but pure potential. They’ve bought the ticket and are taking the ride.
