Quantum physics, the theory of relativity, and the miracle of the solar system fuel Jim Gauer's ambitious and challenging novel. A venture capitalist awakens in Mexico with no sense of who he is and how he got there. According to Gauer, he suffers from what Chekhov called a moral illness. In part a thriller that includes hedge funds, drug cartels and money laundering, Novel Explosives (Zerogram Press) seeks spiritual rebirth for its troubled protagonist.
