Produktbeschreibung
This gripping, coming-of-age story takes you from a schoolyard in Manhattan to the untamed wilderness of the Adirondack Mountains, and then back to the alcohol-fueled halls of the New York Advertising world. Barely surviving the horrific events that have left him alone in the world, Dave Powers returns to New York and uses his design skills to land a position at one of the city's hottest advertising agencies. It's the Mad Men era in the creativity-focused ad business where the male-dominated bureaucrats control the action with all their nepotistic, womanizing antics. When Dave falls in love with his boss, a tenuous outlier who is one of the few female C-Suite creatives in the entire industry, it's a recipe for disaster. Will the tragedies of his early life crush his hopes and ambitions? Or can this still immature young man rise above the fray and summon the fortitude to succeed? Based on true events, the angst and heartache of this intense novel, punctuated by the humor-driven dialog will take your emotions on a lightning-fast rollercoaster ride.
