About TOO FAR:

Rich Shapero’s TOO FAR follows a pair of ultra-imaginative six-year-olds, Robbie and Fristeen, through a transformative summer spent exploring the woods behind their remote Alaskan homes. As their family lives become increasingly unstable, the children travel deeper and farther into their private world. The forest—and the gods who inhabit it—becomes their refuge until, at summer’s end, they are forced to choose between the crushing prospects of the real world, and the lethal demands of their ideal one.

About the Author:

Rich Shapero is a writer and musician whose multimedia storytelling projects pioneer unseen worlds.

At the heart of his stories are vast wildernesses, populated by mercurial private gods who promise deliverance to truer, more profound states of being. But transcendence demands sacrifice, and the paths of his protagonists are fraught with danger, dread and violence.

Combining lucid prose with entrancing music, Rich conjures immersive visionary landscapes and characters who struggle to achieve summits of personal fulfillment.

Features include:

• Fully-integrated music player in book.
• Dynamic one-touch page turn.
• Beautiful interactive map illustrated by renowned artist Laurie Lipton, displaying story locations.
• Full-length digital album with 12 original tracks written by Rich Shapero and featuring Maria Taylor (Azure Ray), Andy LeMaster (Bright Eyes), Rob Powell, Marc Ribot, Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart/PJ Harvey), and many more contributing musicians.
• Stunning high-resolution images from Visionary artist Eugene Von Bruenchenhein.
