Reality TV Under the Microscope in Andrew Foster Altschul’s, “Deus Ex Machina”

We are thrilled to announce that One Story author Andrew Foster Altschul’s (Issue #62, “The Rules”) second novel, Deus Ex Machina (Counterpoint) has now officially hit bookstores.  Critics are gobbling up this “irreverently candid peek inside the entertainment industry”–Booklist. Stacey D’Erasmo, author of The Sky Below, calls it “Searing, riveting, shockingly smart, and imbued on every page with a wicked sense of humor…The tragicomedy of our time;” Publishers Weekly writes, “Rarely has societal critique come with more mayhem…an anarchic assault on the dehumanizing power of media;” and Rivka Galchen, author of Atmospheric Disturbances, says: “Deus Ex Machina manages simultaneously to be philosophical, absurd, kinda dirty, hilarious and, well, Real…Think Shakespeare’s The Tempest gone distressingly and wonderfully modern.”

For more information about the book, including tour dates, check out the author’s newly redesigned website. Or read more about Andrew and the making of Deus here in his recent PW profile.
