In the Seat of a Stranger’s Car Product Description:

In the seat of a Stranger’s Car is a vibrant comedy that looks under the hood at the entourage of working-class misfits you leave your car with every day. Set in the bubbling ethnic melting pot of Hawaii, by day, the pseudo-intellectual protagonist is a struggling writer who teaches at a renowned prep school. By night, he’s a full-time valet, surrounded by a lewd, yet lovable cast of coworkers who challenge his misplaced sense of entitlement.

The gang’s service industry stasis is quickly shattered when they discover a young boy in the trunk of a deserted vehicle in the hotel parking lot. Afraid of surrendering the abandoned child to foster care, the valets decide to raise the child as their own – a task that proves both absurd and transformative. Juggling jobs and a budding romance with a late-night flower girl, the narrator finds himself on a journey around the island to uncover the boy’s mysterious past, but unearths something much more meaningful in the process: himself.

Beau Flemister is an award-winning journalist from Kailua, Hawaii. While working in the valet parking industry on Oahu for 8 years after college, he taught creative writing to high school students and traveled the world extensively (off valet tips), reporting for publications along the way. A former editor at Surfing Magazine, he has been published in VICE, Complex, Outside, FLUX, The Surfer’s Journal and Hana Hou! magazines, among others.
