Author David Antrobus is happy to announce the release of his new non-fiction satire book, Endless Joke.
Endless Joke is a collection of essays. It’s funny. It’s irritating. It’s the book you never realised you needed. But you do. If you want to stay safe (not to mention sane) between the twists and turns and death throes of the old publishing monster and the anarchic new killing fields of epublishing, this book will help in that regard. Often wearing its sometimes snarky heart on its sleeve, a lifetime’s love of the written word fills its pages. In short, it’s composed of equal parts passion, humour, angst and a kind of bewildered, contemplative awe.
Endless Joke was released in October 2012 and is available on Amazon.com, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble.

A timeless story of lust and youth, duplicity and deception.
Laila Levin enjoys a successful marriage and a thriving career as an I.T. executive in Austin, Texas, but she can’t quite shake her lifelong sense of not truly belonging anywhere.
When her company announces a major layoff, Laila finds herself caught between an unscrupulous CEO and her promiscuous boss. Then news of her college roommate’s suicide stirs up a dark secret involving three devious friends from her past. One has betrayed a vow, another wants to rekindle their romance, and the third is out for revenge.
Suddenly for Laila, it’s 1969 again. She’s only seventeen, and she’s left her sheltered home in Long Island for college in Connecticut. Amid protests of the Vietnam War, she’s tempted by the sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll that rule her generation. Laila gets swept up in a deceptive love triangle with two older locals and initiated into their unethical hippie family. Too late she realizes her search to belong has led to tragedy.
Laila must now juggle the demands of her perplexed husband and her baby boomer past forcing her to make choices that endanger her survival and challenge her conscience.
She learns that the lines between right and wrong are often blurred, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.
This book is available from Amazon.
