Patrick Wensink: Fake Fruit Factory

Fake Fruit Factory by Patrick Wensink

  When NASA determines an errant satellite will crash in the eccentric small town of Dyson, Ohio, the town's young mayor uses the ensuing media circus to attract tourism and save his bankrupt rust belt community.

Patrick Wensink's Fake Fruit Factory hilariously captures the peculiarities of small town life through the story of a wacky community finding its place in contemporary America.
