TBR Featured Review

The most unique sci-fi novel I’ve read in years.

What happens when the world gets too optimized? Joel E. Lorentzen, the author, answers that question in his unique, inventive and thought-provoking novel, Proles - a novel about 2084. In the not too distant future, the gap between the have’s and the have nots is as wide as it has ever been, but not for the reason you may think.

 A socialite, a retired dermatologist, a hometown opera singer, and a bipolar ketchup heiress have dreams of turning the Hankey Opera House into Lincoln Center on the Schuylkill River. The reality is that the Hankey Opera Company stands on the brink of financial ruin. They think mounting an ambitious production of Mozart's Don Giovanni, a popular opera about history's most legendary womanizer, will solve their problems. It only compounds them.

After the leading man pulls out of his contract, they wager their future on a rising star, an Argentine baritone with marquee-idol looks who is an incorrigible, untameable modern-day Don Juan. Will his constant need for sex drag the struggling opera company down with him?

DON JUAN IN HANKEY, PA will have readers flying through its pages. Prior knowledge about opera is optional. Love of laughter is essential.
