Sample chapters from an unpublished book by Jerry Stratton
Graveyard is about the profound importance of staying gone when you run away from home. Arthur’s dad leaves him in a shopping mall. Arthur runs after him but since his dad is in a car and Arthur isn’t, Arthur ends up lost in the Shopping Cart Graveyard. He befriends all of the shopping carts, except perhaps K-Marx the Communist Cart. Together with Fisher, a plastic shopping cart, and Voniece, a paraplegic who is not a shopping cart but rides in one, he saves the earth from an invasion of alien Llamas.
