Blurbs, Press & Reviews

“In this comic novel, a jaded adman gets a chance for redemption when God taps him for his marketing campaign. Former adman Vanderwarker—perhaps best known for Writing With the Master (2014), about John Grisham helping him with one of his other novels—brings plenty of insider perspective to this snarky, rollicking tale. Just when the deus ex machine seems shaky, that becomes precisely the point and the novel turns into a rather biting social commentary. An amusing satire about the ad business, with clever twists on its gimmick and dead-on barbs about our brand-obsessed culture”
