Jesse Jensen, one of the handsome faces at Ace New York, is an actor, writer, and director, and has been given a full scholarship to study theater at The Old Globe in California. He just finished a novella called “Jake: The Story of a Young Man Who Might Change the World,” wherein Jake returns home after wars abroad to experience an unanticipated awakening while assimilating back into civilian life — all of which takes place in a gritty near-future named the P.W.
We’re delighted that Jesse will be reading from his book tomorrow at the hotel before he departs to the West Coast where he’ll be getting an MFA, reuniting with his independent art company,The BAGAVAGABONDS, and sailing into the gritty far-future on his seemingly endless creative drive.
Jake is his first book.
