Event Details

Please join Green Apple Books in welcoming San Francisco author Jon Boilard, who will discuss his book The Castaway Lounge on Friday, September 18th, 2015 at 7pm in our Granny Smith Room at the main store on Clement.

Set in a busted Massachusetts mill town circa 1986, The Castaway Lounge is the story of Jackson “Applejack” Woods. Cocaine peddler, womanizer, and tough-guy-for-hire, Applejack is weary of the wrong life and trying to put it in his rear view mirror. But all bets are off when a pole dancer ends up dead during an after-hours party with a pair of shifty businessmen, and our hero risks going to prison or worse by setting in motion a plan to bring the killers to justice.

Told in the clipped, hard-as-nails language of Elmore Leonard and James Ellroy, The Castaway Lounge explores one man’s chronic struggle to choose between right and wrong, and his growing sense that sometimes the right choice requires the ultimate sacrifice.
