Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Set in New York City’s beat generation, a skillfully crafted story of three young professionals trying to make it big in publishing: This is Three-Martini Lunch. Their choices and sacrifices ripple out from the pages and shake our hearts. A gripping read.” Sarah McCoy, New York Times bestselling author
Three-Martini Lunch does for publishing what Mad Men did for advertising. It takes you back in time and then proceeds to etch in a whole world, stroke by stroke. This fast-moving novel is rich with incident and wonderfully conflicted characters.” James Magnuson, author of Famous Writers I Have Known
