Gershwin's Last Waltz and Other Stories

by Frank Frost


Book Details

An Old Photograph Reveals a Priceless Treasure

A henpecked senior citizen buys his own brothel in the desert … A master chef becomes too well known … A school bus full of kids visits the wrong rabbit farm … An American in Provence decides to steal an olive tree … In normal life, ordinary citizens can make slight detours from the straight and narrow. Not so in the zany existential stories of FRANK FROST, a master of haywire roller-coaster fiction. These tales are full of dire and hilarious consequences. And don’t think you know where the clever plots are going—you will find your GPS recalculating!
