Nicole Lyons Reviews Nicholas Gagnier’s Founding Fathers

I have been shook, and I have been rocked, and I have been swallowed by a book, and an author, and my own divisive and inclusive thoughts, after the fact.

With Founding Fathers, Nicholas Gagnier takes his readers to the darkest places where most of them have always been afraid to go on their own, and he has me leading the pack because he enthrals me and fills me with such a twisted dichotomy of ‘Oh my God, no’ and ‘Oh my God, yes’ and I am stuck, as I imagine all of his readers are, somewhere between ashamed and awed, begging for more and pleading for him to stop.

Founding Fathers hits hard, and it scrapes away any pleasantries and ‘how do you do’s’ within the first 100 pages. Nicholas Gagnier has a pulse on the times and rides the waves of our society, unapologetically and with truth so ugly it can’t help but be anything other than beautiful.

Nicholas Gagnier and Founding Fathers is a siren call of our times, a wicked truth and an ugly hope we all struggle with. Founding Fathers taps into the signs of our times and our ugliest motivation, and it is a glaringly beautiful representation of how and why we as a society have ended up where we are. It begs the question: is this who we are, is this who we will be, is this everything we have yet to become.

Nicholas Gagnier has weaved fire into Founding Fathers, and I dare anyone who reads it to step away and try not to check themselves and everything they believe.

Founding Fathers will be released by Blank Paper Press on October 9, 2018
