Curtis Orloff Announces the Release of 'Streetcar Sandwiches'
Susan Branson, a youthful, middle-aged woman, faces an ordeal that threatens to change her naturally optimistic and pleasant personality. Not only does she have to deal with a menagerie of all types of employees, she has to comply with onerous and often conflicting regulations from several government bureaus. Soon, this sandwich shop owner needed both her natural good nature and learned caginess to save her business from dire challenges. Will she succeed?
It was Hannah Arendts book on totalitarianism, which confirmed Orloffs lifelong understanding how the world can work. In Streetcar Sandwiches, Orloff showed how an ordinary theme could expressed universal and timeless concepts. The work also shows how the natural expression of individuality and spontaneity overcomes adversity.
Nothing can suppress the human spirit, the author affirms. All the characters are based on real people. All were individualistic but worked together as a team. The personalities of the main characters starkly contrasted to those of the authorities, leading the reader to revel in the former and to disparage the latter.

About the Author
Curtis Orloff is an Army veteran and Eagle Boy Scout, who had played with the University of Houston golf team, only to sabotage his efforts with an obsession with writing. He supported himself by being a geologist in the oilfield nationally and internationally, offshore and onshore, in jungles, deserts, and deep water. It provided Orloff with all the experiences and material he could ever hope for. The engaging cynicism of H.L. Mencken and the scintillating prose poetry of Jack London yanked him off the golf course. His lifelong love of history and most disciplines kept him off it. His Bachelor of Arts in history and Bachelor of Science in geology were the starting points of his lifelong education. Orloff has also previously published three books, Thunder in the Wind, is an historical novel about the deculturalization of the Assiniboine Indians in late 1800s and Keys to the V Door is a novel about a yuppie who, after being ostracized from his fraternity life, goes offshore on a jackup rig to prove his father did not cheat the IRS. It accurately depicts New Orleans high and low society and what it is like drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. The third is a How-To book.
