Hi Karen,


The author is Max Barry.


Take care

Hi Karen,

His novel 'Jennifer Government' is excellent. It satirises the West's obsession with labels and identity. Jennifer herself is a strong lead character. He is an Australian writer who was rejected by publishers at home and then picked up by one of the New York houses.

Very nice to meet you Karen and congratulations on your success both now and in the future, I must admit that i have not read any of your work to date, but I am headed into town in the morning, and will stop by Borders and see what I can find.
all the best from here in the Desert southwest, land of history and mystery. woven together by both myth and superstition.
