A group of eccentric travelers is stranded by a killer blizzard at a small cafe in the middle of nowhere for two memorable days in this delightfully funny and touching novel by Kevin Cahill. Narrating the events at THE LAST CAFE is Morton Poom, the town's famous poet who fancies himself a mystery writer (and a very bad one at that). Poom introduces us to the strangers who seek refuge from the storm, among them the wealthy and snobbish Victor Spoils and his gin-swilling wife, Muffin; a sweet English Scholar, Linda Love; and a grimy biker only known as The Thief. Cahill's quickly paced style is peppered with hilarious dialogue that leads us through each character's life story. We learn about the journey of life and its many crossroads, as the Last Cafe becomes a brief stopping point along the way.

Colorado native Kevin Cahill is a professional copy writer and graphic artist. He has also written five novels, numerous television scripts, and a feature film screenplay. "I began my career thirty-something years ago as a newspaper reporter," Cahill says. "Being a professional liar and shill for the liberal media just didn't suit me, however, so I considered more honorable pursuits - something like child molesting or serial killing. I wasn't really cut out for those, either, so I settled for writing books." "Like any discipline in the fine arts, fiction writing garners mostly rejection and very little profit. I've been lucky to be able to make a living writing in the business world, which allows me to pound away at my more creative efforts."Review:
