Doctor Boris, a sequel to The Angel Max, is currently under serious consideration by several publishers. About the book, NPR commentator Andrei Codrescu says, “For a novel of ideas, it reads like an action thriller,” while the Pulitzer-prize-winning playwright and poet Michael McClure comments: “It seems like a monumentally ‘American’ novel being told by a kaleidoscopic narrator, a Russian Jewish butcher's son who becomes an enthusiastic assassin for the ideals of the anarchist revolution even as those ideals splinter around him.” For more information about Doctor Boris and other available works by Peter Glassgold, contact the author’s agent: Tony Outhwaite at 212-727-0190 or tonyouthwaite@yahoo.com.
