Bliss Inc. Ron Burch BlazeVOX [books]

In a city that is a dream, or a frontier, or a dystopia, Nel Lowry is our pilgrim whose progress is a search for Bliss, which is a company and the promise of a lifetime position in a place that might have appeared in Kafka's Amerika. Comic as Nathaniel West's A Cool Million and just as biting, in Bliss Inc. Ron Burch has created a world of frightening possibilities and burlesque intrigue, a madhouse worthy of the best amusement parks. This novel is a rich and complex achievement.  Read it.

—Toby Olson

 

Ron Burch knows that if Kafka were alive today, he wouldn’t be stuck in a dead end job. He’d be stuck looking for a dead end job.  Bliss Inc. is an absolutely contemporary allegory of a rent-a-worker, take-what-you-can world where getting started and being on the way out happen pretty much simultaneously. Going nowhere fast in a nameless city has rarely been this entertaining or insightful.

—Mark Wallace
