Don’t Mess Up My Block
The secret to success is to not let other people “mess up your block.”
Or at least that’s what Laurent Christ thinks, in this satiric novel disguised as a self-help book.
Laurent comes from North Dakota, like Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby. He thinks his teachers got it all wrong – Gatsby is a hero.
And like a modern-day Gatsby, he reinvents himself with a new name and history. Laurent drops a hundred pounds, shaves his head and goes on the road as a management consultant, providing advice to corporations around the county. Everywhere he goes, comic disaster follows as companies follow his glib counsel.
But failure is not going to stop him. One man and a story – that’s all you need to make it in America.
As a management expert, he’s inevitably drawn to Washington, DC. But even he is appalled by the intransigent bureaucracy he finds in the city. Maybe he’s been wrong about everything. Maybe you need more than a catchphrase to find success in this country.
Laurent tells the sprawling story of his life in Don’t Mess Up My Block, a novel that examines the American faith in gurus and easy solutions. It’s a satire that takes aim at the times we live in, skewering incompetent bureaucrats, greedy consultants, social media experts and Baby Boomers everywhere.
Don’t Mess Up My Block is a fast, funny read and one that’s perfect for your weekend beach trip. And it’s FREE!
