Ã¢ Â FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE TOP SELLING WAY BEYOND SATIRE
(WILKINSON PUBLISHING 2016) AND EDITOR OF THE SPECTATOR AUSTRALIA
Ã¢ Â HILARIOUS FICTION NOVEL BASED ON REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES OF
ADVERTISING IN 1980S LONDON AND THE AWARD-WINNING GREATEST
COMMERCIAL OF ALL TIME, THE HAMLET CIGARS PHOTOBOOTH AD,
WRITTEN BY ROWAN DEAN
Those `Mad Men' of the '60s were absolute amateurs compared to their successors
in London's glam and decadent 1980s advertising scene, where money, long
lunches and eye-watering expense accounts were the order of the day.
From sabotaging the glitzy marble halls of New York advertising awards to
hijacking gondolas in Venice, this hilarious novel takes you on a roller-coaster ride
through the extravagantly indulgent world of 1980s creative advertising with all
its narcissistic fame and glory.
Written by one of Australia's fi nest satirists and one its best-known 1980s
advertising gurus, Corkscrewed will leave you breathless with shock and disbelief,
and drooling with envy!
