The Gods of Greenwich
Author: Norb Vonnegut
Publisher: Minotaur Books
Norb Vonnegut, the best-selling author of Top Producer, returns to the high stakes world of Wall Street in The Gods of Greenwich. Hired to provide a full book publicity tour for The Gods of Greenwich, Newman guided Vonnegut through a book publicity campaign from galley stage to finished books. With an impressive financial background, author Norb Vonnegut used his experience on Wall Street to offer a (fictional) peek into the lives of America’s most powerful people. Newman’s book publicity campaign helped orchestrate a successful book launch party in NYC, two New York Times articles, a series of book signings, amongst other fantastic interviews.
Norb is working on a follow up to Gods of Greenwich, set to be finished this summer.
Norb’s recent media successes:
- New York Times book critic Janet Maslin dubbed the The Gods of Greenwich one of the summer’s ‘books to bury yourself in‘.
- The Boston Herald’s Jim Sullivan sat down with Vonnegut to discuss the worlds of finance and literature.
- Norb discusses the real people behind The Gods of Greenwich on MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan Show :
About the Book:
Vonnegut delivers a recession-era nail-biter in THE GODS OF GREENWICH, the story of a super-powered hedge fund and a new employee who suspects a deadly secret behind its spectacular quarterly gains. Vonnegut illuminates with startling precision the dark places lurking in the collective psyche of the financial industry’s elite, and he uses that insight to fuel an electrifying tale of suspense.
