The Hope We Seek


Rich Shapero's The Hope We Seek app, designed specifically for Android, fuses his provocative novel with hypnotic, original music—featuring the vocals of Marissa Nadler—and the Visionary art of Donald Pass. The result is a riveting and fully immersive storytelling experience.

“A Delirious Fusion of Fiction, Music and Art. —The Village Voice

About The Hope We Seek:
At the close of the 19th century, Zachary Knox, a sharpshooter known as “the Bull’s-Eye Telepath,” heads north in search of gold. On his way, he meets Sephy, a magnetic woman on the trail of her brother, Raymond, who, in service to a strange calling, has disappeared.
But natural disaster and human trickery conspire to deliver them instead to a cult, a shadowy purgatory where hard labor, sustained by unwavering belief, promises an unearthly treasure. The mine boss, Trevillian, rules the camp like a despotic priest, and at the center of his faith is Hope, an elusive goddess for whom the miners toil, enduring increasingly perilous trials as they pursue her into the depths of the earth.
Zack determines to overthrow Trevillian, with cryptic guidance from Sephy—until Hope appears and reveals the astonishing future she has in mind for him . . .

About the Author:
Rich Shapero's provocative stories deliver readers to different worlds, where characters struggle with gods of their own devising. His two previous critically acclaimed projects, Too Far and Wild Animus, include book, music and visual art and are also available as multimedia tablet apps and ebooks. Too Far was celebrated as "mystical" and "utterly gorgeous," and Kirkus Reviews noted, "Shapero displays an impressive command of the unconscious." He lives with his wife and daughters in the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Features include:
• Fully-integrated music player in book
• Full-length digital album, Songs from the Big Wheel, with 10 original tracks written by Rich Shapero, features guest vocals by Marissa Nadler, who, as Pitchfork Magazine put it, has “the sort of voice that you’d follow straight to Hades.” Other contributing musicians include Son of Dave (Crash Test Dummies), Marc Ribot (John Zorn/Tom Waits), Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes/Azure Ray) and Joe Gore (Tom Waits/PJ Harvey).
• Stunning high-res Visionary artwork by Donald Pass

The Hope We Seek App Amazing app! I loved digging between the layers of text, music and lyrics, and artwork. I enjoyed the storyline, somewhat dark, but compelling! Very cool indie music and visual art too.
