A former copywriter, Kenney knows this world and skewers it with deadly accuracy.
It's the stuff of Jonathan Tropper novels and Judd Apatow films and every Zooey Deschanel fantasy
A masterful blend of wit and seriousness, stunning in its honesty. A novel sure to appeal to fans of Nick Hornby
A lively debut that has 'movie deal' written all over it.
With wry humor, always on point, Kenney guides us through the maze of work, family, love (elusive) and friendship (a lifesaver). This is an outstanding debut
The protagonist, Finbar Dolan, is Don Draper stripped of all his glamour, success and pomade. What Fin, a midlevel copywriter, does have on Don is a sense of humor. . . . Framed around a surprisingly sweet romance, as well as Fin's eventual confrontation with his painful family history, this debut offers a pleasing lightness-to-heart ratio.
A quick-witted, wry sendup of the advertising industry and corporate culture...A clear-eyed, sympathetic story about complex family ties and the possibility of healing
In this Nick Hornby-esque fiction debut, midlife crisis and family tragedy force a 39-year-old ad man to reevaluate his priorities.
We're sold on Kenney's trenchant, quick-witted debut
