Last Stop, Ronkonkoma Description:
After the departure of the Brooklyn Dodgers to L.A., Brooklynite and devout Yankee hater Harry Sisler leads his family as far away from Brooklyn as his money, wife, and (mistakenly) the Long Island Railroad will allow… fifty miles… to Ronkonkoma, where the air squeaks and the trees are filled with ticks.There, Harry determines to play his own god and is consumed by two of his own prophecies: that he will die at the age of fifty (promptly!), but first raise a centerfielder better than the “damn Joe DiMaggio”Good plan, except his wife sets a prophecy of her own, that she will raise the same son to be the family’s first priest, driving Harry away to the pipeline of Alaska. It’s a dog race to the finish for all of them, and as Harry nears his fiftieth birthday, and his last chance to be right about anything (the timing of his own death), the son wrestles with a nagging call to find him.
About the Author:
Fred Schneider (Cooperstown, NY) earned his B.A. in American Literature from SUNY Geneseo. Following an executive career, Fred now owns the Landmark Inn in Cooperstown with his wife Robin. He is a three-time novelist and a two-time invitee to Colgate University’s Novel Intensive. Fred’s short fiction and poetry have appeared in Congo Lust, The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Newsday, and Backpacker Magazine as well as Public Radio, where he enjoyed an extended gig as humor essayist for NCPR and where one of his essays, The Distance of Fathers was short-listed for national release. His novels, including his latest Last Stop, Ronkonkoma (October 2019) have found much critical success. Fred’s current projects include a fourth novel, as well as a play titled, The Glass Eye of James Fenimore Cooper, based on Mark Twain’s famous essay on literary offenses, which he also hopes to produce locally in 2021.

Porcupine in Freefall

In stock / Shipping Available

Poetry. “There are a lot of young writers with talent but Rainie Oet has a strange and mature vision as well, which dwells in a convergence of clarity and swerve, comedy and disquiet, privacy and sociability, tenderness, and something just a touch hard. PORCUPINE IN FREEFALL is no mere concept album, though it has got a rather original driving concept. Combining the authentic feel of seeming autobiographical narrative with surrealistic, whimsical, sometimes lyric, sometimes anti-lyric adventures, this debut is a curiosity and a delight.”—Daisy Fried
