A Novel By Gordon Peter Wilson


E. Michael Jones

Culture Wars

"Wilson is nonpareil, as French New Orleans might say, as both prose stylist and homespun sociologist rolled up in one writer."


 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.
