Stranger than fiction

My new book, tentatively titled THE CHICKEN SHACK, is about a combined funeral home and chicken shack.  Since I began writing the book, combination business like fictional creation seem to have been popping up everywhere. 

In June, I attended a bookseller’s conference in Vermont, staying at a combination movie theater/hotel.

My own town of Newington, CT boasts a clever and constantly bustling laundromat/bar/restaurant combination.   

Now we have Dave Eggers, writer and educator who founded a publishing house/tutoring center/pirate supply shop.  Watch the video. It’s well worth the eighteen minutes of time that you will invest.

More importantly, a chicken shack/funeral home isn’t seeming so odd after all.
