La description

Who hasn’t, at one time or another, considered killing a billionaire? Rich and Poor is a novel of a man who washes dishes for a living and decides to kill a billionaire as a political act. It is literature as political theory and theory as pure literary pleasure—a spiralling, fast-paced parable of joyous, overly self-aware, mischievous class warfare.


"As with Wren's previous work, Rich and Poor is art in resistance, a work that dares to remind us of our capacity for revolutionary love despite the prevailing economic system's structural violence." —Jade Colbert, The Globe and Mail

"The dream of a Marxist revolution is alive and well in Rich and Poor." —Dan Twerdochlib, The Winnipeg Review

"Rich and Poor is a populist parable for our polarized times." —Ian McGillis, Montreal Gazette

"Stoic yet provocative, Rich and Poor plunges the reader into a deep psychology of activism, politics, business, and how they all mesh together." —Largehearted Boy
