    A fable of not knowing how to change the world and perhaps learning how to do so in the process Rich and Poor is art in resistance, a work that dares to remind us of our capacity for revolutionary love Jade Colbert in The Globe and Mail image by Jack McConville.

    Jacob Wren always seems to write from a feeling of political malaise, but in that feeling he s able to find so much beauty and possibility You re left feeling that everything is still possible.

    I like Jacob Wren s writing This is the second book I ve read by him, the other being Polyamorous Love Song which could very well be my favourite novel, or was certainly my favourite at one time.RichPoor is a bit odd It s theatrical, in a way, with these extended monologues, but it s very grounded, doesn t need that liveness to come alive that much theatre requires I actually listened to this as an audiobook, so, I was somewhere in between a reading and a performance, but Wren s voice which is so nice didn t turn it into some dramatic reading In fact I occasionally got confused in the first half about which character was talking there s a lot of didactic lingo in here, deployed for a good reason but still annoying and the kind of thing to make you tube out The good protagonist comes to sort of resemble, on purpose I assume, the bad protagonist, because he s not really an antagonist, not merely a foil, and the screen time he gets is substantial, and he is not merely caricaturized The peak of the novel could be seen as the end of the first part, but Wren doesn t lean on that familiar formal arc, and the struggle for solidarity seems to offer high stakes for the entire second part, which I won t spoil, but which redeemed what I thought was a naive edge lord violence is the answer narrative and ...

    There are no individual solutions to collective problems Montreal based performance artist and writer Jacob Wren writes and thinks and expresses and challenges so well that he is an artist that simply cannot be ignored he should be on everybody s mind right now in the post election mind bending chaos of attempting to adjust to the concept of the ascendency of the very questionably qualified President elect Jacob has seen this situation in his other books.To get the gut level message of his writing it is mandatory to read his book s on your own no preview or review can transmit the power of what he has to say as well as his own prose In brief, RICH AND POOR is about the disparity of class in a capitalist society and Jacob deals with this concept in this story in which a poor pianist tries to kill a billionaire The book is about deception, betrayal, coercion, luck, friendship and violence It is a story of a pianist who envisions an economic collapse and revolution with the death of at least 10 billionaires His mind is set on one in particular, and the pianist sets off in hopeful...
