9780099542223: American Weather

Meet Jim Haskin. He's forty years old. He's worth around thirty-five million. He runs his own San Francisco ad firm, American Weather. AmWe's image is green and forward-looking: if your product is upcycled, or hydro or vegan, they'll make you an ad. However, behind the scenes, Jim supports the old captains of American industry: bleach, beer, guns.

One day Jim is asked to come up with something extra-special. The scheme he devises brings together a Death Row inmate, pay-per-view television, and most of America's largest corporations.

Everything is set for it to be his greatest achievement yet.

Review:

"A strident satire on the American-dream-turned-nightmare... The writing is sharp and clever" ( Guardian)

"Charles McLeod’s writing is very special...crisp and rhythmical, sometimes almost poetic... Bright and sparky" (William Leith Evening Standard)

"A strong, original voice and sharp wit" ( Irish Examiner)

"Raucous, so original... Stunningly good writing... Scorching humour" (Eleanor Henderson, author of 'Ten Thousand Saints')

"This is a wonderfully wicked book that has the potential to impress or offend, depending on your sensibilities. It’s like nothing else I’ve read this year, and Jim is such a hideously lovable rogue that even with all his bad behaviour, I couldn’t help but think he’d be a great person to have in your circle of friends" ( Bookbag)

Book Description:

A remorselessly funny and savage take-down of modern America by an abundantly talented new writer.
