Written with grace, masterful precision and brutal honesty, New World Order shows us characters stripped of the familiar and forced to face the world on its own terms. In Iraq a young man in search of a fortune makes a bargain he never imagined. An adventure journalist on assignment in Australia finds himself at the center of his own harrowing story. In charge of an American company in Mexico, a powerful woman finds strength through submission. By turns frightening and comical, fierce and suspenseful, these eleven stories turn our attention outward, to a world where our role as Americans is no longer as clear and secure as it once seemed. With exotic settings, sharply rendered characters and quick-moving plots, New World Order announces the arrival of a powerful literary voice, and places Derek Green in the tradition of such worldly writers as Graham Greene, Paul Bowles and Robert Stone
