Sam Mossler was a lifelong character actor, writer, teacher, humorist, and made the best Old Fashioned you ever did have. Royalties from this book will go to a scholarship fund set up in his name to help young artists get a leg up. He was born and schooled in Sarasota. QUEEN PALM is his first novel.
If your slate was wiped clean, who would you choose to be? Congressman Vern Bushnell is having one hell of a day. His wife is leaving him, unwashed hippies are protesting his newest condo high-rise, and his long-time political patrons—the brothers Sneed—have decided to make him the patsy for an explosive scandal, effectively ending his Presidential ambitions. So Vern does what any of us would do in such a situation: he threatens to spill all the Sneeds’ proverbial beans to police and press alike. What’s a little blackmail between friends? The Sneeds are predictably and exceedingly displeased. Before Vern can blab, they banish him. Not merely from the political arena, goodness no. They take advantage of a secret, Cold War-era science project gone horribly a-right, and they banish Vern to another universe. A parallel universe. A universe in which Congressman Vern Bushnell has never existed. Until now. QUEEN PALM is a delirious, brain-bending blend of sci-fi paranoia, humid Floridian romance, and a Max Roach bebop drum solo. Close your eyes and listen to the syncopated snares and never-ending Gulf waves shushing, and ask yourself… what would you do with YOUR second chance?
Fans of Neal Stephenson, David Mitchell, Haruki Murakami, and Susanna Clarke
