The Tallest Man in History

Front Cover
iUniverse, May 26, 2010 - Fiction

THE TALLEST MAN IN HISTORY is a humorous attack on advertising. This country is a victim of ads which sell us everything we need and dont need with an explosion of words and promises we cant resist. Everyone recognizes that advertising is awash in exaggerated claims bordering on lies but we all go along with it. Our hero, Danny O Day, exploits those devices to attain goals he never should have had, but he has a hell of a time before hes brought down.

Where else to live a lie but Hollywood, the land of make believe, the land of people pretending to be something theyre not and becoming famous doing it. Danny plays it to the hilt with beautiful babes at his side and the public adoring him for his pathetic charade. Meanwhile his true love at home awaits his day of reckoning.

Good humor solves a lot of problems and Danny has the last laugh even thought theres a tear in his eye.
