FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE TOP SELLING WAY BEYOND SATIRE (WILKINSON PUBLISHING 2016) AND EDITOR OF THE SPECTATOR AUSTRALIA HILARIOUS FICTION NOVEL BASED ON REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES OF ADVERTISING IN 1980S LONDON AND THE AWARD-WINNING GREATEST COMMERCIAL OF ALL TIME, THE HAMLET CIGARS PHOTOBOOTH AD, WRITTEN BY ROWAN DEAN Those 'Mad Men' of the '60s were absolute amateurs compared to their successors in London's glam and decadent 1980s advertising scene, where money, long lunches and eye-watering expense accounts were the order of the day. From sabotaging the glitzy marble halls of New York advertising awards to hijacking gondolas in Venice, this hilarious novel takes you on a roller-coaster ride through the extravagantly indulgent world of 1980s creative advertising with all its narcissistic fame and glory. Written by one of Australia's fi nest satirists and one its best-known 1980s advertising gurus, Corkscrewed will leave you breathless with shock and disbelief, and drooling with envy! ABOUT THE AUTHOR Rowan Dean is a regular political satirist with the Australian Financial Review, as well as a political columnist with other mainstream Australian newspapers. He is also the Editor of The Spectator Australia, the Australian arm of the English language's oldest continually published political and cultural magazine. As well as writing, Rowan is a popular TV guest on Sky News and the ABC where his unfl inching mixture of humour and hard-core political insights is valued on programs as diverse as The Bolt Report, Paul Murray Live, Viewpoint, Jones & Co., The Drum, and of course the ABC's Q&A. He is the author of Way Beyond Satire (Wilkinson Publishing).
