David Lessoff was born and raised, as well as educated in New York City. He left Queens College to pursue a career in acting at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. David started to work in the Off-Off Broadway circuit at The American Theater of Actors where he had eight plays produced, several of which he directed. David won the Jean Dalyrymple award twice for best playwright. He spent 7 years working in Hollywood and collaborating with a number of screenwriters; one of his films being optioned, never making it to the big screen. He returned to New York and began a career in stand-up comedy. David played the comedy circuit for five years, but grew tired of the traveling. He presently works as a train conductor for New York Rail Road, which helped inspire The Eternal Express, his first novel.
The Eternal Express
by David Lessoff
Exhausted and inebriated after partying at an afterhours club, Spencer boards a train on his way. He dozes off, only to discover upon waking that he is now the conductor on a different train. Spencer becomes aware that this is not a dream and the passengers are all dead, with their souls traveling to their eternal resting places. It has now become his responsibility to see that they safely arrive.
