Andrew Hook, Moon Beaver
Benny Henderson works for the Company, an increasingly influential multinational organization. In a city where the occupants embrace freedom from choice, his love for co-worker Louise is the only thing that matters.   Enter this world one Moon Beaver, a girl with one foot in the past and the other in the future, who attempts to manipulate time by remaining in the present to achieve heartfelt immortality. A one-woman cult blending a Sixties hippie philosophy with a post–tech boom head for business, Moon Beaver embraces hypocrisy for her own game plan and is indifferent to the consequences (so long as they work out in her favor). Embroiled in her self-perpetuating fantasy, she isolates Benny from his past, leading her bewildered disciple on a whirlwind tour of Bournemouth, Moscow, and Bangkok, drip-feeding her ideology like Chinese water torture.   Meantime, Louise pieces together Moon’s past from the barest of information, trying to find an angle from which she can reclaim her lover. And in American Midwest, an overweight chicken farmer mulls over the detritus of his life and lost love, while stubbornly resisting the takeover of his business by a large, familiar Company.   Packed with wisecracks, cynicism, and naive hope, Moon Beaver examines the meaning of “self” in a society where individuality is a commodity and wasted lives are commonplace. e-book | ISBN 9780972832151 5.25” x 8.25” 250 pp.
“ You might say [Moon Beaver] contributes to a rather quirky current of “comic slipstream,” even though that elusive thing called slipstream hasn’t been noted for laugh-generating properties. — Roseanne Rabinowitz, LauraHird.com Andrew Hook, Moon Beaver
