Poet's Funeral by John M. Daniel
Book DescriptionPraise for The Poet's Funeral..."In this delicious sendup of the book trade...the author lampoons everything from the overstuffed 'collector's editions' to the self-importance of critics and the self-interest of publishers and agents." - Publishers Weekly starred review At the annual convention of the American Booksellers Association, everything goes wrong. Julia Child's cooking demonstration in the Random House aisle catches fire. A top New York editor catches a pie in the face. Invitations to the most exclusive publisher's party are stolen and all the wrong people show up. Worse, Heidi Yamada-the world-famous poet-is found dead, spread over the late Elvis Presley's king-sized bed. It's all caught on film by a busy photographer from Publishers Weekly, a woman soon kidnapped. When the Las Vegas police shrug their shoulders, Guy Mallon-Heidi's first publisher (and a discarded lover)- wonders what to do. Poor Guy. He's a book man from Santa Barbara who, despite the success of fellow residents Ross Macdonald and Sue Grafton, never felt inspired to be a sleuth. But he feels he owes it to Heidi. Besides, catching her killer may be his only chance to leave Las Vegas alive...John M. Daniel has worked as a bookseller, a free-lance writer, an editor, an entertainer, and a teacher. Now a small-press literary book publisher in California, he has taught fiction writing at UCLA Extension and Santa Barbara Adult Education and is on the faculty of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference. He is the author of several books, including Vanity Fire, the sequel to The Poet's Funeral. www.danielpublishing.com/jmd
