Sintesi dell'editore

Who hasn't, at one time or another, considered killing a billionaire?

Rich and Poor is a novel of a man who washes dishes for a living and decides to kill a billionaire as a political act. It is literature as political theory and theory as pure literary pleasure - a spiraling, fast-paced parable of joyous, overly self-aware, mischievous class warfare. 

As his plan proceeds and becomes more feasible, the story cuts back and forth between his and the billionaire’s perspectives, gradually revealing how easily the poisons of ambition, wealth, and revolutionary violence can become entangled. A fable of not knowing how to change the world and perhaps learning how to do so in the process.

"Rich and Poor is art in resistance, a work that dares to remind us of our capacity for revolutionary love despite the prevailing economic system’s structural violence.” (The Globe and Mail)

"Rich and Poor is more than a critique of capitalism and profit-obsessed society. It’s a parable examining corporate culture - the way it makes us calculating, unscrupulous and ultimately disposable.” (The Toronto Star)

Rich and Poor is a populist parable for our polarized times.” (Montreal Gazette)
