I’ve read and enjoyed Mister Cizak’s short stories. His collection Crooked Roads is impressive, and I’ve looked forward to his longer work. Down On The Street doesn’t disappoint.
Lester Banks is barely breaking even, working long hours driving a cab, abused by his employer, passengers, the world itself. He’s not enjoying much in his life.
An unlikely hook-up with an attractive neighbor gets Lester thinking about a way out of his rut. It works, for a while.
Mister Cizak’s writing is lean and to the point. He gives the reader a story without any fluff or filler.
You can’t go wrong with this guy.
