A Novel By Gordon Peter Wilson
INDUSTRIAL FOOD TYCOON SHALE GIMMEL IS interrupted at a university board of governors meeting with news that his mistress is engaging in extra-curricular activities of her own. A young dishwasher at one of Shale’s properties is beset by unrelenting racial prejudice. A well-heeled stockbroker feels the economic strain of his modern, materialistic existence. A transplanted Pennsylvania millennial in her search for social justice learns the cruel realities of working in the inner city. Their lives come together in this explosive debut novel that takes a satirical bite out of contemporary, caste-obsessed New Orleans.
