A richly comic novel about the pure insanity of the television industry

Bill Flanagan , author of the 'entertaining [and] merciless' (Entertainment Weekly) satire of the music business A&R, unleashes his wicked wit on the television industry. When big-time New York TV executive Bobby Kahn is suddenly fired, he flees to the seaside town of New Bedlam, Rhode Island, to work for a tiny family-run cable business. The family in question, the Kings, happens to be one of the most hilariously dysfunctional broods in recent American fiction, with patriarch Dom presiding over his three quarreling children like King Lear without the vocabulary. Can Bobby save the business, his career, and his sanity? With its drawnfrom- real-life stories, observations, and insights into the madness of the television industry, New Bedlam is wonderfully sharp and hilarious summertime entertainment.
