New America

Penguin Random House had the Book Banned

Experimental Novel created by transforming the art criticism writing of Jerry Saltz into fiction by the extreme editing  of Mr. Saltz's articles, beginning with "War and Peace," published in 1998, and ending with "Floundering," published in 2005.


In 2017 Jerry Saltz wrote, "Anyone can take anything from me... Artists use materials. Writing is material," and I began experimenting with his writing. New America is the result of those experiments. I contacted Mr. Saltz by email before publishing this novel, and he replied, "It's all yours. You wrote it. Good luck!!! Frank Stella." 


Publishing on Amazon allowed me the freedom to change the novel and upload a new version at will, which I had done several times, and may do again in the future if Penguin Random House removes the ban. It is still an ongoing project, which has now become a banned book.


Digital copies (PDF or ePub...) still available, but only here on my website, by email...
