Description

The narrator is a Katrina refugee who landed in Phoenix, AZ on a Greyhound Bus. He works -- sometimes. Mostly he drinks and avoids responsibility as much as possible. But the tenuous world he's built around himself is starting to crumble... his money is running out, his bar is closing, and the motel he lives in is being shut down by the local university for parking space.
