Set in New York during the 1980s, A Fool Among Fools follows the trials and tribulations of the long-suffering Michael Gregoretti, an aspiring playwright who slaves away his days at an cut-throat ad agency writing commercials for therapeutic hand creams and aerosol butter. Although he tries to produce good, honest work for the agency’s clients, he often finds his ideas punted to the side or ridiculed. Worst of all, he just can’t seem to escape the influence of Gwen, his insane former supervisor who is determined to subject him to her will. Peopled with sympathetic characters, humor, and realism, readers will become completely (and uncomfortably) immersed in Michael’s claustrophobic work environment. Recommended for comedy lovers, and anyone who feels under-appreciated at work.
