Gillis as only Gillis can: the politics of love, human action as theater, and the dreams we dream and chase forever. The Consequence of Skating, Gillis' fourth novel, blends politics, drama, ice skating, mountain climbing, the music industry and world affairs - not to mention artificial intelligence and G.O.D. - to create an inimitable tour de force. Centering on Mickey Greene, an actor who has fallen from grace, the novel follows Mick as he maneuvers through a series of adventures that set him on a course of reconstructing his life in a way he never before imagined.
"Steven Gillis possesses that rarest of gifts, the voice that seems to flow effortlessly. This guy makes it look easy. Read the first three pages of The Consequence of Skating, and if you're not hooked, go see a doctor." —Jonathan Evison, author of All About Lulu and West of Here
"I enjoyed The Consequence Of Skating a great deal, it is a very human book... I am definitely planning of seeking out Steven Gillis’ other books." —Simon Barrett, Blogger News Network
