Howard and Charles at the Factory
Dave Housley (Author)
DescriptionIn this remarkably funny short novel, two aging men arrive at their old factory to wait for their jobs to come back, believing the promises of Donald Trump's campaign. In a pair of lawn chairs, they keep watch over the abandoned site, echoing the president's words and weathering the disorientation that follows, from visions of a dinosaur and a hovering UFO to the opportunistic violence of a white nationalist influencer. A swift meditation on the brute force of words, with all the comedy and urgency of Dave Housley's expert wit.
