NOW IN PRESS: On the Bridge, by Irving Vanderblock-Wheedle, author of Reuben’s Brother’s Sister-in-Law’s Husband, &c., &c. The Hampton Roads area’s most distinguished novelist strikes again with a powerful indictment of the ennui of modern culture. A family’s lives are changed forever when their Ford runs out of gas in the middle of the James River Bridge. Four hundred pages later, they’re still there, waiting for the Triple A truck. “This new experiment in real-time narration captures more effectively than any other literary endeavor the crushing boredom of being stuck in the middle of an exceptionally long bridge” —Highway Engineering Week. “Combines almost Joycean stream-of-consciousness with the elegant and economical structure of a bus timetable” —Hampton Leader.
