Truth in Advertising: A Novel - John Kenney Fin is lost. He doesn't speak to his family. He hates his job (but loves the prestige of it, even if it is advertising diapers). He doesn't even know he's in love with his assistant.

In the few days before Christmas, his boss gives him an impossible task: make a Super Bowl ad in under 6 weeks.

Sue Shick makes a great point. The first bit is a huge dump of information and I almost gave up on the novel. But once it starts going, you really start to like Fin and his friends.

Another point I must bring up is that often Fin has these flashbacks and JD from Scrubs' like inner monologues that are long you almost forget what is occurring in the present.


I was given an advance copy of this novel by the publisher.
