It’s the classic dilemma of the writer- Do you write what’s in your heart or do you write what sells? In this modern age of publishing there is a huge chasm between the best selling authors that are rich beyond their dreams and… well, everybody else. All Daniel Waterstone ever wanted to do was write the great American novel and change the landscape of modern literature forever. He has two literary books in print but no one’s buying. His agent won’t even accept his latest masterpiece which he poured his soul into- apparently, it’s not commercial enough. In a final act of desperation, Daniel decides to write – not what’s in his heart but – what he thinks will sell. Boy, did he get that one wrong…

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I laughed out loud many times while reading the book and found myself and others in the story. The story is written and paced perfectly and was a pleasure to read in almost one sitting. I came across Dermot’s work because his books have received several award nominations and I must say I am not surprised in the least.

*******

While you may laugh out loud when you read it, and you probably will, there’s an underlying message here – don’t believe everything you read. Mr. Davis is not only a brilliant writer, he can take the pulse of the nation in deliver it in a palatable manner. Once again, well done!

*******

I am not kidding or exaggerating when I say this book kept my attention rapt and salivating for each turn of the page. The author clearly seems to have experienced similar crises of conscience and has peeked into the windows of truth and self-actualization. It’s incredibly funny and poignant. Highly recommended!

*******

When I started this book, I really didn’t know what to expect because of the title. But having read and enjoyed Stormy Weather by the same author, I felt it would not disappoint. It didn’t. A great humorous read and looking forward to more from this author.

*******

The madness in this book is so real and so possible, it is chilling in its accuracy. I found myself at times nodding in complete agreement, and at others laughing to the point of tears.

About The Author

Dermot is an Irish writer now living in the US. As a playwright, Dermot is a recipient of the O.Z. Whitehead Award which was co-sponsored by Irish Pen and the Society of Irish Playwrights. A fictional account of a dream therapist who is stuck in a dream from which he cannot awaken, with his debut novel, “”Stormy Weather,” novelist Dermot Davis has deftly crafted a minor literary masterpiece,” (Midwest Book Review).

His second novel, “Zen and Sex,” is a witty and ironic first-person look at love and relationships as seen from the confused eyes of twenty-four-year old Martin who falls in love with Frances, a woman fourteen years his senior. Winner of two indie author awards and perhaps because it provides a no-holds-barred look into the mind of a man and his uncensored thoughts, it was suggested by the Kindle Book Review that, “every woman should read it as marriage counseling.”

Winner of 3 Literary Awards, including the 2013 USA Best Book Awards for humor, Dermot’s third novel, “Brain: The Man That Wrote the Book That Changed the World,” is “an entertaining farce about modern society; a deft, fast-paced tale that will leave self-aware readers giggling,” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Coming “Highly Recommended” by the Midwest Book Review, who also called it, “ironic, iconoclastic and pure entertainment from first page to last,” the book poses the question of whether an author should write from the heart or write only books that he thinks will sell. I suspect that this novelist is trying to do both…

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Dermot Davis and ENT appreciate it.
