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.

Sean Murphy's NOT TO MENTION A NICE LIFE offers a voice rarely seen -- that whisper of human suffering that comes from an insular heart. It's as if the photo negative suddenly spoke, and claimed to be the real image, the real person behind the living color and magnetism of what we find in our everyday moment-to-moment existence. As Byron moves into and through his "Terrible Thirties," and the dot-com. boom of wild heights and terrifying drops, we move with him... but we also get to watch, and be that cautious eye which only has to watch, and doesn't have to be. Which is both blessing and curse in this romp of Americana, half FIGHT CLUB, half CATCHER IN THE RYE for the middle-aged. Regardless, I'm hooked -- and want to stay that way.
