Item description for The Blunder by Joe Kilgore...
After a long and successful career, Brice Lanning sees himself as the consummate advertising man. When an insensitive boss, years his junior, tactlessly reassigns his major account, Lanning takes it as a personal insult. Retreating to his favorite watering hole, he embarks on a monumental bender and a particularly ill-conceived revenge. It's a snafu that triggers an inexorable chain of life-changing events.
The Blunder is a modern cautionary tale that makes each of us question whether we are captives or architects of that elusive thing called fate.

The Blunder Jun 15, 2008
Some of my favorite authors Patricia, James, and Janet, have been very disappointing lately. They can take a break because I have found someone new, Joe Kilgore. 'The Blunder' is great writing, funny, full of emotion, and very unpredictable. You won't want to put it down.
"The Blunder" is no mistake May 22, 2008
This novel moves like a rollercoaster. Rich in the details of an individuals life. Kilgores' mastery of language details a wide range of people, whose varied lives inform our own. Crisp, well paced, funny, human & thought provoking. Couldn't stop reading it.
Life times two May 9, 2008
This book gives you two lives for the price of one. The slick high brow life of the glitzy world of advertising. And the real, hard working life of people below the radar scan. The way the hero finds his way from one life to the other is extremely involving. And you never stop wondering which one he'll wind up in. A brisk, fun read that also gives you some tough questions to ponder and maybe even answer for yourself.
Great summer read May 3, 2008
I didn't want this book to end, it was full of twists and turns. The hero goes through so many unexpected situations and I kept wondering where this was going to go next. A very gratifying read, I'll look forward to Kilgore's next book.
