last train

Get inside the mind of anxious, confused, and mixed up Aubrey Glass in Charlee Fam’s breakout novel, Last Train to Babylon. A raw, haunting tale of lost love, forgotten friendships, and twentysomething turmoil, Fam’s first novel is sure to keep you turning the pages on the edge of your seat. Get ready for a wild ride…

Aubrey Glass is just a regular twenty-three-year-old sort-of journalist living in New York with her long-term boyfriend, Danny. She suffers with anxiety on a daily basis and has maybe a slight drinking problem. Her mundane life is just trotting along when she gets the call that her ex-best friend Rachel has committed suicide. The pair hasn’t spoken in five years, but Aubrey heads home to Seaport, Long Island for a week of funeral festivities.

Aubrey claims – and really seems – to not care about the death of her former friend as she returns home to her guidance counselor mother, her two brothers, and a slue of high school classmates whom she doesn’t care to associate with. An unheard voicemail from Rachel on the night before she took her own life taunts Aubrey all week long, but she refuses to confront it.

As the week progresses toward the funeral and infamous after-party, Aubrey’s life is poured out before her readers in flashbacks as she narrates the present. Secrets that Aubrey has kept hidden for five years come tumbling out into the open, and there’s nothing she can do to stop it. She must face her past if she is to ever survive in the present and future.
