The two friends rely on their wits and outrageous sense of humor to overcome the many trials of surviving in today's world especially when an environmentally sensitive project releases the wrath of government authorities and the psychotic attention of an overzealous state trooper dedicated to ridding the earth of irreverent individuals like Andy and Johnny.

About the Author:

Harold Prince graduated from Stony Brook University with a degree in English Literature and Creative Writing but his love for the outdoors led him into the construction business primarily on Long Island's wealthy "Gold Coast" and in the Hamptons. Over the past thirty years he has trained his writer's eye on the nuances and foibles of the working class people who scratch out their living by providing the necessary services others need to build and maintain comfortable habitats. By immersing his academic training in the grit of the blue collar world he produces a story that turns the mundane experiences of everyday life into the eternal struggle to survive. The Operator sinks into the darkest shadows of the soul and shines with the brightest aspects of the human condition. His characters tackle the difficulties we all encounter by drawing strength from the love of their families and using their irreverent humor to make the hardships more enjoyable, thereby transforming a journey we all travel into an exhilarating ride.
