    This is a book whose beauty lies in creating a character who is totally, almost unbelievably terrible as a human really, an absolute platinum lined shitball and yet somehow sympathetic Kennedy Marr is rude, self absorbed, unreliable and from the opening chapter clearly on a fast track to self destruction, but you know what I really liked him And that s not because I am also a shitball, honestly, it s because Niven s writing is clever and funny and honest Mostly t

    What an incredible book A beautifully written, clever, funny and deeply disturbing book that will grab hold and stay with you Niven is as funny as ever but this novel has a distinctly grown up feel about it compared to his others Cold Hands aside What starts out as entertaining quickly gets dark, and then very dark Yet within even the rawest moments, there are still moments of pure comedic genius and you can t help but laugh despite everything that is happening Equally there are

    Review also found at received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher Grove Press via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review The expected publication date is October 7, 2014.This story provided quite the food for thought for me The character of Kennedy was perhaps the most unlikeable, self indulgent, self centered, egotistical narcissistic character I have ever read I simply hated him The problem is he was meant to be and this is where Review also found at received an advanced copy

    How do you succeed in creating a difficult central character, indeed a quite obnoxious one, and yet persuade your readers to fall in love with him John Niven provides a textbook example in this scintillating, very funny and ultimately surprisingly moving satire, the story of a Falstaffian Irish screenwriter, mired in his own deep flaws.Kennedy Marr is no pale genius blushing unseen He fully admits that he s sold out, promising himself that he ll tell philistine producers where to go, but const How do you succe
