Fiction: Debut
I am currently seeking representation for THE FLAME-SKY NIGHT: 50,000 words of literary fiction that takes a deep-dive into the emotional torment brought on by the manufacturing industry.

Brief Synopsis:

Robert, a young man perpetually on the verge of a migraine, is reluctant to admit the grim realities of his working-class life in a factory-dominated city. His comfortably gritty existence — vodka out of wine glasses and drunk walks to the sea with art-school girls — is shattered by the arrival of automation, which brings with it layoffs and protests by the factory workers. Aided by inimitable, chain-smoking, beautiful Marie, Robert tries desperately to avoid the destructive twin currents of industry and social unrest. In an exploration of the human condition, and forced into a world against his will, Robert is chased down the streets by his emotions, faces off with factories that seemingly come to life and try to snuff him out, and erupts in a fury of self-destruction that provokes him to physically fight the raging sea that once represented all the possibilities of life. When the protestors begin planning a larger show of force, Marie flees the city for better opportunities, leaving Robert to face the looming industrial cityscape alone. Although he wants only to be free, Robert realizes that he is caught up in forces beyond his control.
Other Information:
