Excerpt from the Book
I opened my eyes.
I was no longer in the pantry. I was no longer in Al's Diner, ethier. Although there was no door from the pantry to the outside world, I was outside. I was in the courtyard. But it was no longer brick and there were no outlet stores surrounding it. I was standing on crumbling, dirty cement.Several huge metal receptacles stood against the blank white wall where Your Maine Snuggery should have been. There were piled high with something and covered with snail-size sheets of rough brown burlap cloth.
I turned to look at the big silver trailer which houses Al's diner, but the diner was gone.
