Jesse Kellerman - Mandel JCC Festival of Books
Book:  Potboiler

Jesse Kellerman's outrageously funny, provocative new satire Potboiler takes aim at our modern blockbuster culture in a tale that will satisfy readers of all stripes. The novel tells the story of middle-aged writing professor Arthur Pfefferkorn, who refuses to compromise his literary principles and write formulaic bestsellers, like his friend and popular author Bill de Vallee. But after Bill dies during a journey at sea, Arthur stumbles upon his late friend's unfinished manuscript, which he covertly re-writes as his own. The deception triggers a startling chain of events that leaves readers on tenterhooks  often laughing out loud  as Arthur's tame, predictable life spins out of control. As one reviewer raves, "Kellerman balances the line between thrills and satire in this unique reading experience filled with mysteries, conspiracies, double crosses and shadowy villains."

The author of five novels and numerous plays, Jesse Kellerman has won several awards for his writing, including the Elle Grand Prix des Lectrices and the Princess Grace Award. He is the son of bestselling authors Jonathan and Faye Kellerman and lives with his wife and son in California.
