My New Book Is Out! I Am A Very Productive Entrepreneur from Mud Luscious Press
My second book, I Am A Very Productive Entrepreneur, is available now from Mud Luscious Press.
You can, if you want, order it here: http://mudlusciouspress.com/books/svalina/i-am-a-very-productive-entrepreneur/.
The book is a series of absurdist business plans. And it's a novel(la).
You can read excerpts from the book here, & here.
Here's what some people said about the book:
In this joyful critique of a Randian, post-industrial society, Mathias Svalina comments on both the compulsive desire to make the inconsumable & the often intangible recalcitrance of our attempts to create something useful in a world increasingly characterized by a manufactured sense of lack, anomie & disaffection, where we are daily beset by ‘a kind of numbness, a shadow of desire or fear offset against a blank world.’ Svalina refuses this numbness & offers something else, something completely stunning, in its place.
This is a subversive & necessary book: the quixotic entrepreneurial spirit of individualist American capitalism is revealed as an inherently poetic construct, one that rests on theater, liminality, imaginative drive, contradiction, & failure. I AM A VERY PRODUCTIVE ENTREPRENEUR is poignant & brilliant; it’s worth the investment.
If you buy this book & you don't like it I will give you one gram of my blood.
