Synopsis: Fiction. Charles Lime eats, breathes, and sleeps the romantic idea of leaving Small Town USA, wandering the globe, and "having grand adventures laced with the danger and lustiness of exotic climes." In reality, Charles, a 20-something college graduate, walks the drab city streets of Western Pennsylvania, dazed and bemused—a dreamy misfit bewitched by a girl and bewildered by a string of misfortunes.

These wakeup calls are harsher than the customary dose of Dad's verbal assaults, the drunken landlady's late-night sexual harassment, and the apocalyptic messages of a pamphlet-pushing, religious zealot. If someone has the right to fall off the deep end, it's Charles Lime. And so he chooses to retreat further into his imagination where he creates a parallel life filled with overseas travel, adventure and Serbian pop music. To say Charles finds solace in fantasizing about escape is an understatement. Chronic thoughtlessness defines his whole existence and his departure via mind travel is his panacea.

Readers who like to escape reality will find a soul mate in Charles Lime. As author Randall DeVallance describes it: "For people like Charles, it should be said, the idea is always more powerful than reality."

About the Author: Randall DeVallance is the author of the short novel, Dive (Authorhouse, 2004), the short-story collection, Sketches of Invalids (Xlibris, 2007), and the novella and short story collection, THE ABSENT TRAVELER (Atticus Books, 2010). His stories have appeared in several anthologies and more than 30 print and online publications including McSweeney's, Pindeldyboz, Eyeshot, Vestal Review, and Word Riot. He lives in New York City.
