Project X

Project X

John Gall, New York, New York, 2003

Description

This is a novel about two disconnected teens and their eventual involvement in a Columbine-like situation. Instead of focusing too literally on the plot, I wanted to create a numbing buzz of a cover, the result of generic forces created by overstimulation.

Juror Notes

“Uncomfortably provocative, and the type—which runs trendy when applied to an entire book— somehow works here.” Cheryl Towler Weese
