"...a pleasant slow roast of Hollywood's studied inanity, complete with laugh-out-loud reality show pitches." —Kirkus Reviews "[T]his satirical first novel...is filled with jabs at reality programming...the clever surprise ending puts everything in perspective." —Publishers Weekly Trent Tucker, the protagonist of this hilarious satire, hates Reality TV. Unfortunately, his job at Nova Consulting involves the creation of new Reality shows that are even more outrageous and excessive than those now on television. Surrounded by colleagues who could easily be characters in their own reality show—the dumb blonde, angry black man, flamboyant homosexual, frosty bitch, fast-talking Sicilian and their megalomaniacal boss, P.T. Beauregard—Trent dives headlong into a world filled with incessant bickering, backstabbing co-workers, deserted islands, and maybe a murder plot or two as the employees at Nova feverishly try to create new and better shows for their anxious network clients. It is a journey Trent will never forget—if he manages to survive it. Reality: The Novel is a wicked satire of the kind of show that has become a staple of American television. It is a first novel by stand-up comic Jeff Havens.
