Contract City




Tonight Austin author Mark Falkin brings his new novel to BookPeople, Contract City. Set in 2021 in the fully privatized city of Tulsa, OK, this is the story of a film student who sets off to discover who is behind mysterious graffiti tags in town, a mission that leads her to the city's home-grown mega-church and the movements of a growing camp of homeless citizens parked just beyond Tulsa’s comfort and security.


Born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Mark Falkin has lived in Texas for the last twenty years and has called Austin home for most of that time. By day, he is a literary agent and a recovering music attorney. His 2006 self-published novel, Days of Grace, was optioned for a film, and nominated for a national literary award, The Needle Award, at POD-dy Mouth blog. He writes, he reads, he tries to find time to paddle Texas waters, he goes for long walks, and he keeps an eye on his young daughters, snatching hugs here and there.

Thank you for supporting Mark Falkin and your local independent bookstore!
