The author of banned book Ctrl-Alt-Revolt has written a funny new novel about Hollywood. Apart from being a good writer, Nick Cole is also a working actor, so I expect this to be a very good send-up of the movie business.
Here's the Blurb:
The story of one man’s attempt to ruin his career in order to save his life.
The Great Director is a man convinced that the movies he’s pouring his heart and soul into are killing him. After a series of dubious therapy sessions, he becomes convinced—while eating a pretzel—that he must do the unthinkable to save his life: he must ruin his next picture. Instead of filming a masterpiece, he intends to shoot the equivalent of Brad Pitt reading the telephone book, except without Brad Pitt.
But mayhem and destruction are not so easily accomplished. Slacker producers, a has-been cinematographer, a junkie gambler action hero who’s run out of credit, smarmy players looking to bend any concept into next summer’s blockbuster, and a cast of grumbling, griping, hardworking malcontents do everything in their power to prevent the Great Director from wrecking his movie and escaping the business alive.
Part Catch-22, part The Player, Fight the Rooster is an eclectic, funny, and unpredictable thrill ride through life and Hollywood.
