Out of Print – May 2022


John McCabe’s first collection of short stories delves into the human experience of everyday characters living their lives in a major city. That city could be anywhere in the world that has a mass transit system where subways, elevated, and underground trains whisk people from station to station. Whether New York, Rio, Mumbai, London, Tokyo similar conversations like those on the Philadelphia El Trains can be heard. People sharing their exploits of the day with their friends and associates as they travel their own life’s journey.

Meet Danny Fisher, as he develops his news reporting skills. How about David Ganty, the janitor of the Manhattan Project, sweeping away nuclear waste. Then there’s T.T. teaching young Jules about racism. The characters in this collection of stories are captivating, riveting and genuine. They are samples of all of us.
