In this joyful critique of a Randian, post-industrial society, Mathias Svalina comments on both the compulsive desire to make the inconsumable & the often intangible recalcitrance of our attempts to create something useful in a world increasingly characterized by a manufactured sense of lack, anomie & disaffection, where we are daily beset by 'a kind of numbness, a shadow of desire or fear offset against a blank world.' Svalina refuses this numbness & offers something else, something completely stunning, in its place. Gabriel Gudding, author of Rhode Island Notebook This is a subversive & necessary book: the quixotic entrepreneurial spirit of individualist American capitalism is revealed as an inherently poetic construct, one that rests on theater, liminality, imaginative drive, contradiction, & failure. I Am A Very Productive Entrepreneur is poignant & brilliant; it's worth the investment. Christian Hawkey, author of Ventrakl
