Praise

“There’s nothing amusing about getting laid off—except when it’s a story told by the brilliant Terry Shine, one of the funniest writers I know.”
—Dave Barry

“Unpredictable and with deprecating humor, journalist T.M. Shine’s debut will appeal to anyone affected by the current economic crises.”
Booklist
 
“Florida journalist Shine turns on his profession with this acidly funny…first novel about a newspaper refugee who takes unemployment harder than most.”
Kirkus Reviews

“T.M. Shine has more fun with a day than most any other writer can imagine in a year. He turns clock-watching into a bright, comic thrill-ride.”
—Bill Zehme, contributing editor, Esquire magazine and author Lost In the Funhouse

“Humor and profundity are not mutually exclusive, and life can be, and mostly is, serious and funny simultaneously. It’s not always easy to capture that in words, but when T.M. Shine manages to do so, it’s a sign of a master at work.” 
—Tom Shroder, former editor of Washington Post Magazine
