Ran Walker (Author)

He has left his hometown to avoid an ex-girlfriend who has since remarried. In his new town, he lives a mundane existence until a new co-worker invites him into her intimate world and pushes him farther from the safety of his old identity.
In this experimental novella, Ran Walker uses flash fiction to write a "fuga hacia adelante" (flight forward) story, modeled after the works of Argentinean author César Aira. In a story that uses no names, uses no traditional plot structure, and flirts with the boundaries of meta-fiction, Work-In-Progress is the most unique of Walker's works to date.
