One of a kind.
Generation defining. These are just a few of the many accolades used by critics and readers alike in describing the latest adventure from author Andrew Yorke, who delivers one of the pivotal stories of modern times. A story of atonement, great risk, and the triumph of the human spirit, Runaway Empire captivates readers with an experience that is both heroic and intimate.
A tale of first love, the end of youthful innocence, and true love’s naïveté. In his short fiction debut, author Andrew Yorke once again delivers an unpretentiously personal experience in his characteristic, bare-it-all style. Waiting for Love at Airports takes the reader on a brief journey through a semi-autobiographical conversation that goes deeper and lasts longer than the fifty-six pages would seem to allow.
A culmination of meticulous research and personal devotion, this story is an illustration of seminal moments in Sharon’s life: her birth; her first auditions; her stay in Jean Harlow’s home; her marriage to director Roman Polanski; her role in the film adaptation of Jacqueline Susann’s Valley of the Dolls; even her pregnancy and untimely death—through the eyes of her unborn child. Yorke takes her most pivotal and controversial moments and weaves an unequivocally personal account of Sharon’s life and the collective human experience.
