Monte Schulz - The Big Town


/book/9781606995037Join us for a gin and tonic as Monte Schulz speaks easy about his new novel, The Big Town ($29.99). A novel of the Jazz Age, The Big Town is the story of a failed businessman whose dreams of prosperity hinge on the secret proposition of a millionaire industrialist and a dangerous relationship he finds with a poor orphan girl chasing love in the great American metropolis. "Those who savor authentic details of a bygone era will be rapt by Schulz’s delightful displays of staccato, wise-guy diction (‘Say, hatchet face, what’s the dope?’) and his cascading sheets of period description that set the scenes." -- Booklist

"Beautifully written and thoroughly researched, a veritable time-machine that whirled me through time to the dirty back roads of the American midwest in the year before the Depression. Did I mention how good the writing is? The writing is excellent… This book is a masterpiece of setting and storytelling." -- Cory Doctorow

Monte Schulz received his M.A. in American Studies from UCSB. He published his first novel, Down By the River, in 1990, and spent the next twelve years writing a novel of the Jazz Age — This Side of Jordan. He wrote it for his father, the late cartoonist, Charles M. Schulz. It is followed by The Last Rose of Summer and a third book in the trilogy, The Big Town.
