9780007524358: The Deep Whatsis

A gripping and hilarious satire of hipsters, consumerism, contemporary art, for fans of Bret Easton Ellis and Don Delillo. When a successful Advertising Executive meets a mischievous intern, his whole sensational existence begins to crumble around him.

Eric Nye, a Chief Idea Officer at a New York advertising agency, is the ultimate corporate success story. Ruthless, talented and young, his employers pay him an extortionate amount of money to manage the ‘downsizing’ of their company, which entails firing dozens of longtime employees before their pensions kick in.

It’s only when he meets ‘Intern’ that cracks begin to show in his seemingly triumphant existence. Eric could have ‘Intern’ any time he wants her. So why hasn’t he? And why can’t he stop thinking about her. Before long, what begins as sexual frustration becomes an existential crisis that causes Eric to question his careers, his relationships, even his sanity.

Mattei’s addictive debut follows its anti-hero’s quest for contemporary self-identity in a toxic corporate world.

Review:

‘With zingy, hilarious glee, Peter Mattei takes a sharp stick and pokes it at many deserving underbellies: the puffery of corporate America; hipsters, yoga dudes, and the general pretentiousness of north Brooklyn; and many more. The Deep Whatsis is a provocative, darkly subversive, deeply satisfying novel.’ – Kate Christensen, winner of the 200 Pen/Faulkner Award and author of The Astral

‘For a certain breed of asshole in the creative industries, The Deep Whatsis will read as a life guide. For everyone else, Peter Mattei's well-observed, deeply funny, and perfectly pitched satire is a gift.’ NIVEN GOVINDEN
