In a Town Without a Name
by James Murray

Corey’s cell phone rings at 3 a.m. His father is dying. Along with his wife and two children, Corey journeys back to his hometown to say goodbye. Immersed in his childhood home, he journeys even further back in memory to the summer of 1982, when he was fourteen years old, obsessed with arcade games, movies, and rock ‘n’ roll music, forming lifelong bonds with friends and starting to date girls. A heartfelt, humorous coming of age story, In a Town Without a Name explores topics of familial bonds, class conflict, disability and ableism, social gender roles, love, grief, and technology that are just as relevant today as they were in the 80s.

James Murray is a first-time author. Growing up in the 80s, he bore witness to the explosion of technology at that time and was an avid arcade gamer. He keeps his memories alive by writing fiction. James lives in the Greater Toronto Area with his wife, son, and two daughters. Instagram: the_80s_author
