Foreword Review Book of the Year Award Finalist (2015). Spokane, Washington, is nearly perfect for most people, but Jack Fitzpatrick is not one of them. Hours after graduation and armed with his final paycheck from his nemesis, Jack heads for Southern California. Dreams are a dime a dozen in the City of Angels. Broke, barely scraping by, and hating his life as a temp, L.A. is definitely not what Jack expected. But after reading “Best Paying Jobs of 1987” in Time magazine, he decides to go after the only one he thinks he has a shot at: institutional bond broker. Once frustrated that his dazzling lack of experience keeps getting in the way, Jack is ecstatic to land a job at Freedom Capital, a no-name firm with a hire anybody mentality. Pumped to be on his way to his first few million, Jack eagerly engages in the challenged ethics of his new employer. When a series of innocent events lands him in prison, he’s sure things can’t get any worse. He would be wrong.

    Our author shows us through a world of the macabre (mainly L.A.) as the main character, Jack, struggles to hang on while the very plan he set in motion tests his grit. Full of wonderful, situationally hilarious and always fully x-rated confessions of young man set out to ensure the proper lighting for his bright future. I couldn’t put it down once I opened it. Reminded me of the dark humor I always enjoyed in Palahniuk, with much more chuckling and far less retching. Honest and true in his message, the Mr. Jans passes along great advice while keeping his reader more than entertained.

    The fresh point of view of the character regarding subjects that we now consider cliché makes for an incredible fun and fast paced reading. The author has managed to capture a life experience and turn it into a palatable story full of witty metaphors and quick turns. This books, albeit being a first, has all to offer and makes us want for more to come.

    Lots of laughs, and, because I graduated the same year, a walk down memory lane. A great story of starting out after college full of dreams, and as each dream harshly crashes into reality, figuring out how to still make a life for yourself that you can live with. This story comes full circle and does just that.
