How to Build a Career and Find Happiness During a Recession

A Tragi-Comic Novel of Unemployment, Underemployment, Wall Street, Main Street and other Matters that Seemed to Matter at the Time

This is a comic novel about graduating from college into a recession. It’s meant to appeal to fans of Catch-22.

I’m now a professional journalist and published non-fiction author, but I wrote this novel during a period of underemployment following college graduation. I managed to get it in the door with two publishers, but both gave me the same reason for rejecting it—it’s written for a young male audience, and young men don’t buy enough books. I can’t say they were wrong. Still, fans of satirical fiction might find it entertaining, and the themes remain timely.
