Fiction



The story of three people who must figure out what they want, what they want from each other, and how they're going to get it, all in a place that's more Wild West than Caribbean paradise.

 Paradise, but not for amateurs. In his novel, An Island Away, author Daniel Putkowski takes us far from the sparkling beach and glamour hotels to the other side of Aruba. This is San Nicolaas, a waning refinery boomtown of barroom brothels, flexible morality, and one tourist trap known as Charlie's Bar.

In a place that's more Wild West than tropical paradise, we meet Luz, a young Colombian woman working as a prostitute to pay off her family's debt, and Sam, an aging American expatriate looking to perpetuate his flamboyant youth. Together they find Captain Nathan Beck, washed ashore and barely alive after his tugboat sinks in a storm. For each of them, the town of San Nicolaas provides hope amid desperation as they live dangerously and grapple with reality in pursuit of their dreams. It all unfolds under Charlie's watchful eye. He knows that on his desert island, you have to improvise.

Excerpt
It's not the first step that's slippery, they all are.
