The Impossible Fortress: A Novel
A love letter to the 1980s and to nerds everywhere–The Impossible Fortress will make you remember what it feels like to
love someone–or something–for the first time. Billy Marvin’s first love was his computer. Then he met Mary Zelinsky. Do
you remember your first love? It’s May 1987. Fourteen-year-old Billy Marvin of Wetbridge, New Jersey, is a nerd, but a decidedly
happy nerd. Afternoons are spent with his buddies, watching copious amounts of television, gorging on Pop-Tarts, debating
who would win in a brawl (Rocky Balboa or Freddy Krueger? Bruce Springsteen or Billy Joel? Magnum P.I. or T.J. Hooker?),
and programming video games on his Commodore 64 late into the night.
Then Playboy magazine publishes photos of their idol, Wheel of Fortune hostess Vanna White, Billy meets expert computer
programmer Mary Zelinsky, and everything changes. “A sweet and surprising story about young love” (A.V. Club), and a “quirky,
endearing, full embrace of the late eighties” (USA TODAY), The Impossible Fortress will make you laugh, make you cry, and
make you remember in exquisite detail what it feels like to love for the very first time. Heralded as one of the most anticipated
novels of 2017 by Entertainment Weekly, Bustle, and InStyle.com, The Impossible Fortress is a surefire “unexpected retro
delight” (Booklist, starred review).
