Allison Burnett at Stories, Echo Park

Allison Burnett presents and signs The Escape Of Malcolm Poe at Stories Echo Park

1716 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026


For the past ten years, Malcolm Poe has dreamt of escape. His plan is simple: The day his youngest child starts college, Malcolm will leave his devoted wife to resume the creative life he abandoned for marriage. As the hour of his departure nears, Malcolm buys a blank notebook to chronicle the riot of his memories, passions, regrets, and aspirations. The Escape of Malcolm Poe is a hilarious ascent into the deluded imagination of a middle-aged man who believes it is never too late to start over.
