The highly anticipated sequel to the bestselling-and
laugh-out-loud funny How to Lose Friends and Alienate People
When even his friends refer
to him in print as “a balding, bug-eyed opportunist with the looks of a beach
ball, the charisma of a glove-puppet, and an ego the size of a Hercules supply
plane,” the odds of Toby Young scoring—in any sense—appear to be slim. But then How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, his
account of the five years he spent trying (and failing) to take Manhattan,
improbably catapults Toby to bestsellerdom, and his book is translated into
twelve languages, including American.
Now Tinseltown beckons.
After receiving a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity from a big Hollywood producer, Toby sets his
sights anew on a high-flying career, this time on the West Coast. But it doesn’t
take long for Toby’s fabled “brown thumb” and self-sabotaging instincts to
reassert themselves. On the home front, though, things seem to be looking up:
Toby manages to persuade his girlfriend to marry him and move to Los
Angeles—but then she decides to abandon her promising legal career in order to
become a fulltime homemaker … and mother. Toby’s increasingly hapless attempts
to pursue a glamorous showbiz career while buried in diapers will strike a chord
with all modern fathers struggling to find the right work/life balance … and
with their utterly exasperated wives.
