Overview

In his ambitious, entertaining, and adventurous debut publication, Warren Pete delivers six stories that intertwine outlandish humor with stunning glimpses into the human spirit. Didn't Know I Was Lost features a number of unique characters in vastly different surroundings-ranging from shopaholics to kindergartners to sweatshop employees to polar bears-who struggle mightily when forced to react to the dynamic world around them.

As the opener, Underneath it All inspects the lives affected, and not affected, when tragedy occurs in a third-world sweatshop factory. In the not-too-distant-future satirical adventure, Black Friday Eve, an American family prepares for the final shopping season in the nation's history, and is led by a matriarch who will stop at nothing to secure the top sale item. In Falling Stars, a way-past-her-prime former pop star meets an all-talk-no-game aspiring rapper in what might initially seem as an unlikely pairing. A kindergarten class shares an experience that transforms them into All Grown-Ups. As a last-ditch effort, a family of entertainers attempts to stage a hilarious scripted family moment in order to win the grand prize on a home video TV show in Cutting Room Floor. In the powerful closer, a polar bear and his son try to survive in a world that is literally shrinking beneath them in Melting Away Beneath Us.

At the core of these stories filled with hilarity and heartbreak, triumph and tragedy, self-interest and self-sacrifice, lies the journey toward finding oneself and finding a way to change in order to survive in a world that has moved on without them.
