About the author:
Geddy Gibson is a writer, educator, and musician.
Jim Crayson begins his first shift at the backwoods convenience store and realizes things weren't supposed to turn out like this.
Sick of teaching logic at Midwestern colleges, Jim had taken his chances at starting over in Northern Florida. For now he just needs cash while he keeps looking for something permanent.
The possibilities seem endless. Jim feels certain that any day now his degrees and experience will land him writing work--or at least a job with benefits. And then there's that shot he has at winning thousands on a quiz show.
But it's no picnic dealing with this job and the people it involves. Will Jim watch his hopes dissolve into the seedy, violence-prone world he encounters at the store? Could his last sight be a customer pointing a gun at his head?
Warkin is a bleakly comic portrayal of the real prospects for many who change careers and pursue their dreams.
