Tom Maurstad

We are excited to host Tom Maurstad in the store on January 19th at 6:00PM to discuss his new novel, Mind the Gap.


DESCRIPTION


Justin Mayhaps is an advertising wiz turned web-based marketing guru, and Ellis Presley is a musician-video artist on the cusp of indie/internet fame. They are both stuck: Justin in his unresolved guilt, Ellis in her unresolved anger.

Cast against the immediate backdrop of South by Southwest, Austin’s annual multimedia Mardi Gras, and the larger context of a growing social-cultural protest, the eXit movement, a revolution prompted by the exploding gap between the haves and have-nots, Justin’s and Ellis’ stories are told simultaneously, narrative tracks bound to intersect, creating a portrait of imperfect symmetry.
