Synopsis: We live in a world of endlessly overlapping deadlines of our own creation, worrying about time wasted, time lost. We re-imagine memories of missed moments yet we lose sight of the ultimate deadline: when our time is up. PERMANENT DEADLINE is a wildly entertaining yet unsettling war story about life on the clock. Seven people with conflicting agendas and shared deadlines collide spectacularly in the final days of the Cold War. They live and love and lie to each other in an alternative universe of frightening familiarity. Pulitzer Prize-winning war correspondent Mark Fritz, who covered every significant global event since the fall of the Berlin Wall, upends accepted notions of piety and patriotism and exposes a media machine?s clownishly inept coverage of a world unraveling. Fritz is the author of LOST ON EARTH: Nomads of the New World, winner of the Salon non-fiction award, of which judges noted: ?Although Fritz?s subject is cruel, his book is strangely delightful.? PERMANENT DEADLINE is, in spirit, a sequel to LOST ON EARTH. Beneath the brutally black comic take on real events, there nevertheless beats the heart of humanity.
About the Author: Mark Fritz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning war correspondent and the author of the award-winning book, LOST ON EARTH: Nomads of the New World. He was the first recipient of the American Society of Newspaper Editors? Jesse Laventhol Award for Deadline Writing. Fritz has covered national and international news for the Los Angeles Times, Associated Press, Boston Globe and Wall Street Journal. He covered the unification of Germany, collapse of the Soviet Union, and wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Somalia, Chechnya, Liberia, Bosnia, Mauritania, Mali, Lower Manhattan, and others. He was twice a visiting lecturer at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies and has appeared on CNN, MSNBC and numerous other broadcast outlets. Aside from war, Fritz has written about the medical establishment?s fleecing of the elderly whilst keeping them alive by any means necessary, creating a country full of lucrative vegetable gardens of imminent obits. He also researches the role of propaganda in wartime strategy, the uselessness of laws based on emotions, the generational conflicts triggered by the aging population, the epic routes taken by massive amounts of immigrants, the impact of changing demographics on the environment, and the genetic engineering of the food we eat.
