Henry Baum’s “Oscar Caliber Gun” Gets New Release in 2015

oscarcalibergunFirst written when SPR founder Henry Baum was only 19 years old, living in LA as a child of Hollywood movie professionals, this novel is now re-released, in time for The Oscars, with a new cover and in Kindle format, and captures the male angst of living in the City of Dreams, faced with oblivion and little hope of “making it.”

“Hollywood celebrity stalker Ray Tompkins prowls the underbelly of Los Angeles, his new target is A-List Actor Tim Griffith, and Ray’s going to see this one through to the star-studded end. This Noir thriller set in pre-Internet 90s LA will be enjoyed by fans of Schrader, Easton-Ellis and Bukowski.

” This pacy, tightly written novel is like ‘Taxi Driver’ meets Charles Bukowski’s Factotum.”
Uncut

“An amusing, persuasive insight into obsession, stalking and the disintegration of sanity. Highly recommended to anyone with a bitter hatred of Tom Cruise and Hollywood stars in general.” Butterfly

“A marvel of pace and comic timing….Much of Baum’s narrative bears a similarity to Dostoevsky’s Notes from the Underground.” Daily Telegraph

“With a superb narrative control, Baum paints a portrait of male dysfunction set to explode.”
The List

” Ray is nearly as good a portrait of post-collegiate angst as has been painted so far.”
New York Press

” Explores the hazy junction where the teeth of the daily grind sink into the day-dreamt certainties of life’s true bell-head sounds.”
Lee Ranaldo, member of Sonic Youth
