The Big Hype

The Big Hype

(1992)
A novel by

 
Paul Brock may have written a great book, but it isn't until impresario Mel Steiner gets ahold of him that he discovers what it really takes to be the Great American Novelist

By the time Paul Brock finishes his first novel, he has already lived half his life: He has a wife, kids, and a career writing movie scripts. So to fulfill his dreams of becoming a Novelist with a capital N, he has to go big, and that means turning to his star-maker friend, Mel Steiner. Soon Brock has a team of trainers, a stage show, a signature look, and even a movie deal. Self-respect, however, remains elusive.

The Big Hype is a rapier-sharp takedown of the book industry, and a brilliantly funny premonition of how authorship and celebrity culture have become dangerously intertwined.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Avery Corman, including rare images from the author's personal collection.
