Duck Book Cover

Set in the very near future, DUCK is the story of an elderly man who loses his home and embarks upon his own odyssey across Los Angeles. Following, and sometimes leading Arthur, is the duck who has grown to be family.

Provocative, insightful, sublime, here is a character piece about two unlikely heroes who find purpose, redemption, and grace - proving, in rather surreal and ingenious fashion, that there's nothing common about decency, nor the survival of the humane. Written with lyrical prose, strong social message and subversive humor, this beautiful and moving tale reads like a cross between 'The Little Prince' and 'Jonathan Livingston Seagull.'
