According to Kirkus Reviews, Ted Heller's writing will "make you laugh out loud." This story of the glossy magazine industry has won critical acclaim for its wicked humor and unflinching examination of New York City "slab rats," who will stop at nothing to climb the corporate ladder. Zach Post is an editor for It magazine with an impressive history: his father is a famous architect, his mother a socialite, and he has attended Colgate, Berkley, and Liverpool University. Or, at least that's what everyone thinks. When obnoxious new editor Mark Larkin is quickly promoted, Zach's secrets are threatened, and his future no longer seems bright. But he knows what to do-Mark Larkin must be eliminated. Ted Heller draws from his experience with a variety of magazines to write a slick, hilarious "exposE" of the industry. Johnny Heller's narration captures all the biting wit of this fresh, clever satire.

Professional reviews

"A bitter satire of cutthroat office politics skewers a glamour magazine in New York. The text is funnier than narrator Heller's interpretation of it. He has the sound of a rube in the big city and all the subtlety thereof. If he has read the book before entering the sound studio, he has well disguised the fact. Y.R.
