Who ARE these interesting, beautiful people in all these exquisite paintings? Where are these lovely, fascinating, distinctive places? “Brush With Peril: A Full-Length Agent Ian Anger Novel of Low Brow Intrigue and High Brow Art” will answer these questions, fans… definitively! They’re SPIES! Who wear masks!
In this art-referential treasure-trove of thrills and melodrama, American Realist Sculptors are getting murdered across the nation. Agent Ian Anger is sent around the globe to find out why, with only his wits, his tuxedo and ski mask, and armed with automatics and his fists, all manner of exciting vehicles on land and air, and teaming up along the way with various colorful fellow masked agents who make up the Global Agency of Protection.
The search leads to masked politicians, masked religious leaders, menacing masked thugs, masked football players, masked kick-boxing ballerina dancers, masked girlfriends of masked celebrity artists, masked scientists, masked assassins (to protect their identities), and mechanical sea monsters who don’t wear masks because they’re robots, as well as gunfire, karate chopping and kicking and punching, car chases, air and boat warfare, illicit gambling with heavy stakes (Name the Bean!), healthy pseudo-intellectual expostulations on art appreciation and critical analysis; and all of it embroiling Agent Anger in a political plot of vanity, villainy, art theory, and destruction.
WHAT IS ART? What has art to do with the thin but intensely problematic plotline? And why is so much art so heavily referenced? Who has the right to create, analyze, judge, or censor art?? Is the fate of the nation's art appreciation at stake??? Join Special Agent Ian Anger and the Global Agency of Protection... because the future of high art, pop culture, and trash media may depend on it!
