Hot on the heels of JPod comes Douglas' new novel The Gum Thief. It's a cross between Clerks and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Roger, a divorced, middle-aged "Aisles Associate" at Staples superstore strikes up an unlikely friendship with goth Bethany after she discovers his imagined writings about her in a left notebook. The Gum Thief reveals the comedy, loneliness and strange comforts of contemporary life. Brilliant!
