Truth in Advertising

John Kenney, read by Robert Petkoff. Simon & Schuster Audio, unabridged, digital download, 11.75 hrs., $23.95 ISBN 978-1-4423-5851-5
“Can I say something else, now that I have your attention? Can I ask you to think about the fact that you got a three-ninety on your math SAT’s? Why do you leave the house in the morning?” These are the thoughts of one Finbar Dolan, whose life is in shambles as he attempts to write an extremely important Super Bowl commercial for his advertising agency. While it sounds as if he’s clearly done well for himself, Dolan is actually a fragile man in crisis. Narrator Robert Petkoff portrays Dolan with a slightly annoyed, somewhat oblivious tone. His narration is engaging and rife with underplayed emotion that builds as Kenney’s irreverent tale unfolds. This audio edition captures the book’s compelling mix of humor and drama and will keep listeners tuned in until the very end. A Touchstone hardcover. (Jan.)
