Jim Gauer | 2 comments Hello!

This is my book, and it's being published on October 11. I wish to update the book description as soon as possible!

I would like to totally wipe out what's there and replace with this:

New copy begins below line:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
". . . big, brainy, trippy, Technicolor noir . . ."
-- Starred KirkusReview, August 15, 2016

"An amazing novel, a literary masterpiece that reads like a thriller . . . the most fun reading I've had in ages."
-- Steven Moore, author of The Novel: An Alternative History

Ambitious, groundbreaking, and fiendishly funny, Novel Explosives travels down the mean streets of venture finance, money laundering, and the Juárez drug wars on a torrent of linguistic virtuosity infused with a rarefied business I.Q. and mastery of everything from philosophy to pharmaceuticals, poetry to thermobaric weaponry. While an amnesiac, two gunmen, and a venture capitalist entangle and entwine in a do-or-die search for identity, at the palpitating heart of this novel, at its roiling fundamental core, lies an agonizing reappraisal of the way America behaves in the world, a project as worthy and urgent as it gets.

Jim Gauer is a mathematician, widely published poet, and possibly the world's only Marxist Venture Capitalist.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
End changes.

Would love if the spacing as typed here is preserved in the description when posted.

Thank you so much!

Best,
Jim

Added the description part above to the book (the old description also had the praise/reviews, which would also have been removed when a librarian saw it).
