AMERICA’S NEXT GUN MASSACRE IS INEVITABLE.
Unless one government intern can make a miracle of his odd DC jobs.
Gabriel Dunne’s internship has him tracking gun violence in America. But before he can start, boss Chloe tasks him with planning her wedding; Parker wants help seducing their fellow intern; security chief Hubbard hounds him about expired passwords; the shredder guy needs saving from his deadly machine; and Congress threatens a government shutdown that’ll send them all packing. When a colleague is victimized by just the kind of violence their office exists to prevent, this frazzled bunch must fight back, or become statistics in America’s next mad shooting spree.
“A tragicomic requiem for America–a once shining dream of democracy that has fallen prey to its own bureaucratic government that operates ‘besides the people, despite the people, and against the people.’ “—David Suarez Gomez, Heaven Is Coming Home.
“A lively, moving book in the tradition of Joseph Heller… this page-turner has great heart.”–Tony D’Souza, Whiteman and Mule.
“A political thriller… the milieu is, as in East’s first novel, the federal bureaucracy—this time in the swamp at D.C. The nation’s capital is rocked by multiple shooting sprees, even while the NRA tightens its hold over our ‘elected representatives.’ Patchworks is governed by an ever-present social conscience that lends weight to the existential fumblings of its characters.“—Ted Prokash, The Brothers Connolly and Journey to the Center of the Dream.
