內容簡介

主角看似成功的前中年期人生,不得不面對過去痛苦的家族史,紐約廣告業的真實樣貌同時展現在這本小說中。

「書中的主角Finbar Dolan像是褪去了光環、成功與髮油的Don Draper(美國電視影集《廣告狂人》的主角),唯一像Draper的是,他是個有幽默感的中階廣告文案。故事的框架是個甜蜜的浪漫小說,加上Finbar最終不得不面對的痛苦家庭史,作者的第一本小說,既輕快又感人。」
--《紐約時報》(New York Times)

前中年期的Finbar Dolan,在紐約麥迪遜大道上的廣告公司擔任企劃文案的工作,脫離了在波士頓藍領階級的原生家庭,他的職業生涯還算成功,儘管他並沒有意識到自己在這個城市過著寂寞而迷惘的生活。40歲生日前幾個月,他取消了婚禮,耶誕節前幾天,不得不取消不斷延宕的假期,因為他得為他賣尿布的客戶在極短的時間內企劃在超級盃上的廣告。

更好的霉運是,得知像陌生人一般,甚至曾經對他暴力相向的父親生了重病,久未見面的兄姊根本不想去探望那個不夠格的父親,這些事情像是敲醒了Finbar Dolan,讓他得以重新檢驗過去他所做的抉擇,並且承認他愛上了同事Phoebe,更重要的是說出他的過往與生命真相。

本書作者John Kenney從事廣告工作已有17年,機鋒處處的語言,廣告產業的文化盡在書中表露無疑。更重要的是,透過主人翁Finbar Dolan的人生經歷,告訴我們家庭的重要。

Finbar Dolan is lost and lonely. Except he doesn't know it. Despite escaping his blue-collar Boston upbringing to carve out a mildly successful career at a Madison Avenue ad agency, he's a bit of a mess and closing in on forty. He's recently called off his wedding. Now, a few days before Christmas, he's forced to cancel a long-postponed vacation in order to write, produce, and edit a Superbowl commercial for his diaper account in record time.

Fortunately, it gets worse. He learns that his long-estranged and once-abusive father has fallen ill. And that neither his brothers nor his sister intend to visit. It's a wake-up call for Fin to re-evaluate the choices he's made, admit that he's falling for his co-worker Phoebe, question the importance of diapers in his life, and finally tell the truth about his life and his past.
