9780007127689: The Book, the Film, the T-shirt

One week in the making of a TV commercial for car tyres -- as told by the inimitable Matt Beaumont, author of e What does a successful adman do when he realises the stars of his new commercial want to kill each other, his director has walked off the set and his client has turned up in the wrong T-shirt? How does one of these stars react when he's asked if it's true that he's packing salami in his shorts? Why on earth does the other one think that dueting with a Chinese Elvis impersonator could be a smart career move? What does the adman's pregnant, swollen-ankled wife do when she realises the cheating bastard just happens to be shooting an ad with a rubber-clad Hollywood nymph? And how could any of the above possibly have a connection to the world's most useless drug smuggler?

Review:

'Beaumont...is a technical whiz at his craft...He succeeds. Humour, feelgood factor, mild suspense...it is one airport novel that is definitely designed to take off' Guardian 'Delicious knockabout comedy...this is funnier [than e] and easier to follow' Bookseller 'This is Jeffrey Archer with irony...you'll be highly amused.' Daily Mail 'Toe-curlingly good...makes you laugh out loud' Campaign Praise for 'e' 'A brilliantly plotted comic novel...it gave me more sense that literature is alive and kicking than anything else I've read in these 12 months' Humphrey Carpenter, Sunday Times Review of the Year 'Lively, viciously funny and about as switched on as a novel can be' Mirror 'Hilarious' Cosmopolitan
