Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"One of the funniest and most shamelessly entertaining novels around," wrote Now Magazineabout Warren Dunford's hilariously off-kilter novel of friendship, artistic ambition, and organized crime. Originally published in Canada to widespread acclaim, Dunford's Soon to Be a Major Motion Picturehas finally crossed the border. Stirring elements of screenwriting, thriller fiction, ironic self-examination, and urban street smarts into an oddly invigorating postmodern stew, Dunford's novel drops the reader into the lives of Mitchell Draper, screenwriter/office temp; Ingrid Iversen, painter/coffeehouse manager; and Ramir Martinez, actor/health-food-store clerk as they come face-to-face with their dreams in the last way they expected. Mitchell's sudden and suspicious opportunity to pen the screenplay of a bad "mafia princess" movie for obnoxious film producer Carmen Denver coincides with the opening of a reluctant Ingrid's first exhibit and Ramir's one-man-show. What goes wrong? Lucky for the reader, pretty much everything as mysterious stalkers, threatening phone calls, and old secrets promise to do a lot more than just break up a friendship in what actress Anne Bancroft called "One of the best fun reads of all time!"

"Comic and unexpected ... a far more eloquent meditation on art and dreck than any 5,000-word essay in Harper's. [Dunford] can look forward to a loyal and growing audience."-Paragraph: The Canadian Fiction Review

Warren Dunfordhas been a professional writer for 17 years; his stories have appeared in Quickies 2, This Magazine,and The Toronto Staras well as numerous men's magazines. He is the owner of Warren Dunford Creative Services, providing copywriting services for a range of corporations. He lives in Toronto, where he is hard at work on the sequel to Soon to be a Major Motion Picture.

Synopsis:
