Book Reading at Winchester Book Gallery

June 20, 2015 @ 4:00 PM - 6:00 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.

Murphy has cleverly transformed Byron from Lord to dot-com shlub. Instead of chasing minotaurs through labyrinths, he hunts for meaning among the cubicles. Not to Mention a Nice Life is a wry, acerbic, and terrifying critique of the notion that there is really nothing left to critique. Modern Corporate America is less an enemy than a state of reality. They have won. We have lost. Byron, like the rest of the 99%, is left with layoffs, failed stock options and the slight possibility of love. Read this very funny book. Like, right now. And then pour yourself an ice-cold laudanum.

-Sean Beaudoin, author of Wise Young Fool and Welcome Thieves
