Jakob Guanzon was interviewed on NPR’s All Things Considered about his debut novel, ABUNDANCE. Guanzon says: “I knew I wanted to explore wealth inequality and the experience of poverty, yet that's not necessarily anything new to literature, right? But one aspect that I really did want to hone in on was the ever present and really inescapable knowledge of your budget, your spending power…[a]nd how that kind of weighs down on you, on a person who's living in poverty, and even in a situation that's less dire than Henry's, the protagonist of ABUNDANCE.” Graywolf Press published the book on March 2, 2021.
