Runaway Joe by David Hight

indie ebook cover

'Runaway Joe' is an enjoyable tale featuring the magic and power of theatre. Set in the summer of 1972, it is the story of a young drifter who has isolated himself from the rest of humanity both physically and emotionally, until in a tiny little farm town, he meets Laura, a young woman who introduces him to theatre. Together they set out to produce a play, ‘La Vie Apres le Pan’, or ‘Life After Bread’, about four women in France, shortly after World War II, who dream of a life outside of the bread factory that they work in. There’s a huge cast of characters that revolve around Joe’s story, and they’ll guide the reader through tragedy and sorrow, as well as triumph and joy, in a tale that is wonderfully, beautifully, transcendent.

About The Author...

indie author

David Hight

  

Hmm... a biography, where do I start? Well, I'm 58 years old, live in South Texas, and have toiled away at a wide variety of occupations in the past 44 years, all of them short term, with the exception of serving as the house manager at a high school performing arts center for twelve years. There I developed an appreciation for the Arts, especially the Theatre Arts.

I enjoyed my part during the production of the plays, helping with the construction of the set, focusing the lights, and setting up sound equipment, but what I enjoyed most were the plays themselves. When all of the preparation for a show had been completed, and it was time for its performance, the students took over from there, leaving me to join the audience.

Plays that had woven through their story thought provoking glimpses of human nature were my favorite, and plays that caused me to think about the trial of being human, long after the show was over, were my most favorite of those. And there is the basis of inspiration and the goal for my novels, to tell an interesting and entertaining story, while also evoking thoughts about our fellow travelers maybe not commonly thought.
