Inhaltsangabe: Matt, a fledgling screenwriter, volunteers to work with the terminally ill in exchange for a good plot for his next script. He meets the people who work, die, and mourn in this world of last moments. In the novel-in-stories style of Tim O'Brien's July July and Charles Baxter's The Feast of Love, O'Connell's characters in Evacuation Plan reveal themselves in poignantly unfolding stories: the gambler who played a risky game involving his wife and his ex-con father; the mortician who was an unwed father-to-be; the daughter whose dying father has no clue about the night her world spun out of control; the nurse who lived among aging neighbors and struggled to hold her own family in place; the drunk who magically encountered himself as a boy. Forgiveness, joy, making the final leap. Evacuation Plan is the story of a world in which the clock ticks off the final moments for all of us and makes of those moments a lifetime.
Über den Autor: Joe O'Connell has met a mass murderer, prowled a crack house and spat seeds at a watermelon thump. He's a Texas native whose early career focused on small-town journalism. He earned an MFA in creative writing from Southwest Texas State University where he worked long distance with the late short story master Andre Dubus. O'Connell's stories have appeared in The G.W. Review, Other Voice, Confrontation, Lullwater Review and many other journals. His stories have taken first prize at both the Deep South Writers Conference and in the Louzelle Rose Barclay Awards. Of late, he teaches writing to graduate students at St. Edward's University and to undergraduates at Austin Community College. He turned a budding career as a movie extra --otherwise known as "scenery"--into a gig as a film industry columnist for the Dallas Morning News and The Austin Chronicle. He also has contributed to Variety and Texas Monthly.
