Book Reading at Cafe Pizzaiolo

June 18, 2015 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

I will be reading from my new novel, NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE.

NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE examines corporate America during the not-so-quiet storm that preceded the historic economic meltdown of 2008. Sean Murphy lifts the rock to reveal a high power HQ and guides us through the alternately surreal and exciting world of big deals and small souls. A literary expansion on “Office Space”, this novel provides an answer to a question not enough people have asked: What happened to Holden Caulfield when he grew up? He got a job.

It’s early in that lamentable decade of the 2000s, and while the good times continue to roll in corporate America, they won’t be rolling for much longer—and no one knows it better than Byron, the Everyman narrator of Sean Murphy’s witty and wise firecracker of a debut. If you liked Joshua Ferris’s AND THEN WE CAME TO THE END, you’ll love NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE. Byron might not have a future, but Sean Murphy certainly does.
