About The Event

Jakob Guanzon is the author of Abundance, a wrenching debut about the causes and effects of poverty. Evicted from their trailer on New Year’s Eve, Henry and his son, Junior, have been reduced to living out of a pickup truck. In an ingenious structural approach, Jakob Guanzon organizes Abundance by the amount of cash in Henry’s pocket. A new chapter starts with each debit and credit, and the novel expands and contracts, revealing the extent to which the quality of our attention is altered by the abundance—or lack thereof—that surrounds us.  Set in an America of big-box stores and fast food, Abundance reveals the inequities and anxieties around work, debt, addiction, incarceration, and health care in America today.
