Redfiend Publishing today announces the release of the novel SUPERPOWER(S.) by Lauren Fairbanks. This is Ms. Fairbanks’s third book. Her earlier works, Muzzle Thyself (a book of poetry) and Sister Carrie (a novel) were published by Dalkey Archive Press.

Ludivine is the heroine of this postmodern novel. SUPERPOWER(S.) contains a screenplay within a novel. In this novel, Ludivine provides her commentary on the filming of her screenplay, which consists of her life in her own words. The action transports the reader in time and space, popping back and forth from France in 1944 to the Vatican, to more recent NYC fashion world and Pakistan. All it takes is a little superpower from Ludivine.

Steven Moore, the author of The Novel: An Alternative History, writes of Fairbanks’s long-awaited second novel: “Fairbanks’s own superpower is her prose style: snappy, witty, offbeat, impudent, slacker-laconic, aphoristic, irreverent, zany, bookish, and occasionally bizarre. If three or more of those adjectives appeal to you, you’re sure to enjoy this off-road exploration of the nature of beauty, motherhood, and love.”

Lauren was born into a scholarly family where the written word was sacrosanct. She studied with Gilbert Sorrentino and Richard Stern at the University of Scranton and University of Chicago. She received her master's degree from UChicago with a creative thesis.
