Bindlestiff by Wayne Holloway
The year 2036; in a broken down post-Federal America, Ex-Marine Frank Dubois journeys from LA to Detroit on a mission to find redemption from his past actions both at war and at home.
In present day Hollywood, a British film director hustles to get his movie made in a cut throat and sycophantic business. Somehow, these two worlds collide.
BINDLESTIFF begins with a simple image of a man mending the hole in his shoe with some glue and a cut off piece of rubber. And from there explodes into a broiling satire on race, identity, family, friendship, war, peace, sex, drugs but precious little rock and roll.
Weaving together elements of screenplay and prose, BINDLESTIFF explores the power of storytelling and how we use narratives to make sense of the world.
"If it’s broke, fix it."

Praise for Wayne Holloway
Wayne Holloway delivers a clenched fist rammed hard into the flabby belly of what post-modern writing has become.
– Stewart Home
At long last: A short-story collection packed with meaning. Land of Hunger is a socio-political odyssey that is both laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving. Wayne Holloway is a much-needed breath of fresh air.
– Lee Rourke, author of Vulgar Things
A proper good read.
