Temporary People explores the human condition in all its most vulnerable exposures. Sharp and satirical, it is a breathtakingly paced romp, and the end will leave you drop-jawed and wanting more. Temporary People is a book for the ages and Steven Gillis delivers.

"Temporary People is a vicious and compelling storyboard for our time."—Jeff Parker, author of Ovenman

"As thoroughly dark and thoroughly humane as Vonnegut's apocalyptic novels like Cat's Cradle and Galapagos.... Here's a fable for our time, and for just about any other time you can imagine."—Chris Bachelder, author of U.S.!

Steven Gillis is the author of the novels Walter Falls and The Weight of Nothing, both finalists for the Independent Publisher Book of the Year Award and ForeWord Magazine’s Book of the Year awards for 2003 and 2005. He is a six-time Pushcart Prize nominee, and a collection of his stories—titled Giraffes—was published in 2007.
