Never Sink Books
Dedicated to modern American folktales
The Street Singer follows flat-broke subway musician, Jason Spirit, as he stumbles into contact with high-powered developer Thaddeus Hoover – a thinly-veiled take on developer Bruce Ratner.
Spirit ends up playing project supporters and opponents against each other in order to get a song he’s written to rapper BScott – a take on Brooklyn Nets minority owner Jay-Z.
This is a novel about sex, money and power in a changing Brooklyn, a musical and often humorous take on present day NYC, complete with Russian oligarchs, blogger journalists, gentrification, poverty, celebrity adulation and basketball.
An America discovering a new paradigm of global captitalism, with a reinvented Brooklyn at its core.
Signed copies available only through pre-order on this website. Ships early-October.
After a small, upstate New York synagogue burns to the ground its devastated members wonder what is next. Their Rabbi vows to rebuild, but Southie Lewis, a secular Jew of modest means, offers to lead them, like Moses through the wilderness, to the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas — the fastest growing city in the U.S. — in hopes of finding a new Promised Land.
